This is really going to be fun. We have some sweet pea seeds
which we'll plant in a pot. We need a stick about three feet
long to push into the soil beside the seeds. Let's watch how
the stems cling to the stick as they grow. After the stems
are about one foot tall, we'll gently pull the stick out of
the soil, and lay it sideways so it goes along the counter
top. The stems will still be growing along the stick. Or
will they? What will they do?

After a week or so, we will very carefully take out the
stick, and see what happens next.
