PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will love this discovery-based project on seed dispersal! Groups of students will investigate seeds and predict how they will travel. Then, perform hands-on tests on the seeds to discover the actual methods of seed dispersal! Finish off the lesson with a reflection that requires students to extend their knowledge on seed dispersal and apply their higher-level thinking skills. This product also contains several ideas for extension projects!

Do you teach seed dispersal using the Peter Pan Theory of Seed Dispersal? If not, you might want to look it up! Included in this package is an alternate version of this project for your classroom too!

In this download are detailed instructions, tips, and hints; materials; 2 pages for student responses; 1 answer key; and project ideas for extending this activity.
Additionally, there are 2 alternate pages included for teachers using the Peter Pan Theory of Seed Dispersal!
