In the Bean Dissection Lab, students will discover the parts of a lima bean seed by dissecting it, and discover what each part does.
- 34 pieces – Lima Bean Seeds
- 15 pieces – Small cups
- 15 pieces – Magnifier
- 15 pieces – Plastic knife
Other materials needed:
Paper towels, water, pitcher, and pencils.
This lab requires soaking the bean seeds for 4 hours before dissection, so plan for kids to start early in the day by introducing the lab and having the kids put their bean in water. Much more than 4 hours makes the beans mushy.
