Meet Coolbean the Soybean! He’s a super bean, but he has something very important in common with kids everywhere. He needs the support and knowledge of his family and friends—including an awesome farmer and some smart scientists—to grow up.
In a hands-on inquiry activity, students observe and document the first two stages in the life cycle of a soybean plant: germination and the development of a seedling.
Using a random sample of edamame, students will collect, present, and interpret data to determine the number of beans a soybean pod is likely to contain.
COOLBEAN the Soybean is published by the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America,
and Soil Science Society of America, with generous support from the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board.
