Barbie™ Plant Science Kit
Barbie™ and her friends take a trip to a vegetable and flower farm. While at the farm, they conduct a number of experiments with plants and learn many lessons in plant biology.
As you read the story, you can perform experiments alongside Barbie™ to learn about plants. Experiment with water-absorbent soil pellets and set up a small greenhouse to grow garden cress. Observe the effects of water, soil, sunlight, temperature, and contamination on the plants. Plant peas and make a maze for your pea plants to follow.
Grow four different types of flowers from seeds: marigold, zinnia, phlox, and dianthus. Set up a plant stand for your potted flowers. Make seed bombs and decorate plaster garden stones to adorn your greenhouse and potted plants. The kit includes a 16-page illustrated storybook manual, greenhouse, six types of plant seeds, plant pots and dishes, soil pellets, and other tools and materials for the experiments.
