Sprout Science Project

Sprouting grapefruit seeds
1. Take the grapefruit seeds and place them against a wet paper towel in a ziplock bag (leave a section of the zipper open so air can get in)
2. Place the bag near a window

3. Make sure the paper towel stays wet (so the seed will get water).

4. Watch the seed coat break off the seed and then watch the seed begin to sprout - examine the different parts of the sprout (roots down, leaf up)
*This can also be done with corn (popcorn).
5. Record what happened.
