Grassy Brick Experiment
Can you grow grass on a brick? You'll be surprised when you try the grassy brick experiment.
What You'll Need:
- Non glazed porous brick
- Pie tin
- Grass seed
Many plants can adapt to very difficult growing conditions. Grass seed, for example, can sprout in less than ideal locations.
Step 1: Soak a non glazed brick overnight in a bowl of water.
Step 2: The next day, put the brick in a pie tin. Set the pie tin in a sunny spot.
Step 3: Pour water over the brick so that it runs down into the tin until the brick is sitting in about 1/2 inch of water.
Step 4: Sprinkle grass seed on the top of the brick. The grass seed will sprout into plants.
Grass is a hardy, harmless plant -- but some plants are more sinister. Keep reading science projects for kids: classifying plants to learn about a creative way to warn others about dangerous plants.
