It will go in a Topic Box covering Growth ( plants) but for now, it's to be used with a pre-school child who has no sight.
Not sure if he's recently lost his sight or was born without it.
Here's some pics.......and obviously the book has a packet of runner beans to go with it, so he can feel real beans.
The word cards will have braille on them, so a child who reads braille can use those in a lesson.
I thought I would make a pull up and down plant to go with the story, so using an empty baby wipe tube.......this is what I made.
If you look there are dangly thread 'roots' at the bottom.
The idea is that the big button stops the plant from being pulled up too much and the blue base unscrews, so if its pulled right out, it can be rethreaded lol
I mixed pva with soil for the earth in the pot, which is laid on a glued in position, circle, itself supported on the inside by an inner tube.
Just realised that the pic of the finished plant, which stands up with a plant support stick, hasnt turned out.......so will slip that pic in, when I'm back at work next week. Now I come to think of it, the camera did say it had 'detected a blink'...........!!
