Ideas for growing a plant, at home, in an artficially created atmosphere that has a lot more CO2 than normal - for a science project ?

My son is interested in an experiment that would attempt to grow a plant in atmosphere that had much more CO2 than is usual.
We don't have access to laboratory equipment.
Any ideas how CO2 could be produced and maintained in, perhaps, a Vivarium
? The quantities don't have to be exact so if we had one plant growing in normal atmosphere and one growing in "a lot more than normal CO2" that might be OK but the problem, as I see it, is : creating the CO2 and; ensuring the atmosphere is maintained over the course of the 4 weeks it would take to get a decent growth from whatever we grow.
