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!
