Kids Activity - Planting Broccoli From Seeds

One of the easiest Science Experiment to do with kids is to plant a vegetable or flower from seeds. That is real life science. Kids can water and watch the plant grow. A real life 'experiment' like that teaches young children about how plants grow much better than any interactive game, educational app, TV program or computer software can ever teach.

Practical and day to day Science for Kids projects like planting seeds are simple and not time consuming at all.

So, when my kids picked up some seeds at the hardware shop, I couldn't say "No" when they said "We want to plant broccoli, mum." We bought them the broccoli seeds and allowed them to plant them into their own pots and this is what we got.

Now, will the real broccoli please stand up? We had two different types of plants growing from our broccoli seeds and I don't know which is the broccoli. Does anyone know?

I searched google images and saw that most of the broccoli plants look like this

So, what is this mystery plant? Can you tell?

    1. Thank you, Maureen, our cabbages normally look white and have the leaves wrapped up tightly together, so I couldn't tell.

  3. My #2 said it looks like a cabbage haha! Do keep the plant longer and see if the brocolli flower sprouts out or not and let us know soon. If no flower, I guess you can still eat the leaves like kailan? The leaves of brocolli are kailan right?

    1. We eat broccoli all the time and we juice it too, that's why the kids wanted to plant their own. ;)

    1. The bean seeds activity is really enjoyable for the kids. We had to label their beans so they wouldn't fight over whose beans grew taller or shorter etc. lol.
