All young biologists are intrigued by botany, or the study of plants. The Botany Greenhouse Kids Science Kit by Thames and Kosmos will lead kids to answers to all their questions about the fascinating world of plants through fun hands-on experiments and activities. Young botanists can learn about plants and seeds by conducting experiments in a specially designed botanical laboratory with self-sustainable greenhouse dome, complete with a thermometer and ventilation. Next, the Botany Greenhouse Science Kit allows learners to construct an automatic watering system to keep their plants from getting dried out. After setting up a home for their plants, children can grow beans, cress, and zinnia flowers, and learn how each plant has different needs. As part of this interactive science plaything, little botanists can learn how roots work to transport water and nutrients throughout a plant, conduct experiments that demonstrate how plants need water, light, and heat to grow, discover the strength of a bean and how leaves sweat, see why grass grows back after it is cut and how cuttings can grow roots, germinate fruit and vegetable plants from the seeds in their kitchen, grow a flower garden, make tiny plaster bugs to decorate your garden, collect seeds with their socks, and grow a funny grass head. Kids can learn all about basic botany with the Botany Greenhouse Kids Science Kit from Educational Toys Planet. This bio science kit comes with a 48-page full-color illustrated step-by-step manual booklet. Creative Child Magazine - Preferred Choice Award - 2012
