Learning Resources Primary Science Plant & Grow Set Review & Giveaway

 I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review.
Learning Resources

     Learning Resources is back with another great product.  Jayden enjoys planting and things that grow.  Unfortunately, I am not as good at keeping up with the plants once they are brought into our home or planted.  I am hoping to do better this time.  We received the Primary Science Plant & Grow Set from Learning Resources to review.  This is one of their new for 2013 products.



     This set includes 12 items plus activity cards:
* 1 watering can
* 1 rooting tray
* 1 observation jar
* 2 lids (solid & screened)
* 3 pots
* 1 trowel
* 3 plant markers
* 10 activity cards

     The Primary Science Plant & Grow Set has just about everything you need to start growing plants.  We just added the soil, seeds, water, and sunlight.  So to start Jayden and I set off to the store to purchase some seeds.  We looked through the activity cards for some ideas before we left.  When we got to the store Jayden had fun picking out seeds.  He really wanted to do vegetables so he picked out cucumbers.  We also got some flower seeds and Oregano.



     We started by using the observation jar and planting the flower seeds.  We found some small rocks in our front yard to line the bottom with, added the soil, seeds, and water.  We put the lid on it and found a sunny windowsill in our dining room.  We thought it would be good since baby can't get to it either.


     Next Jayden really wanted to plant his cucumber seeds.  We decided to use the rooting tray.  We added the soil and spread out the seeds in all 3 trays.  We placed the tray on the same windowsill.


     Last we planted the Oregano in the 3 pots and placed them in the windowsill too.  After planting Jayden checked on them a few times asking if they were growing.  He noticed right away that the observation jar has condensation on the inside.  He is excited to watch them grow.  While we were planting he asked lots of questions like, "do plants grow at night with no sun?", "how long before they are big?", and so on.  He is so excited and can't wait to water them tomorrow too.  I must admit I can't wait to see how these grow.  Crossing my fingers I don't mess it up for him.


     This set has so many fun learning opportunities.  I really like that the activity cards give lots of great growing activities like from a pineapple, radishes, and more.  The cards also provide step by step instructions.  Jayden was able to get the materials needed for each activity because the card shows a picture.  The observation jar and the rooting tray are both clear and make it easier to see the roots as they grow.  There is so much to learn in this set from parts of a plant, to the life cycle of a plant.  And once the plants begin to grow you can start to measure them and get a little math involved.    I think my only complaint would be that the trowel is pretty small and it doesn't scoop much.  You don't need much, but still small.  Learning Resources continues to have many great educational products.
