A teaching lesson on the Parts of a Seed, complete with activity. The construction paper diagram of the parts of a seed helps students visualize what a seed really is. Lesson plans for a 10-15 minute teaching presentation are described and include content notes to display in a graphic format. The notes come in two content levels.
This resource also includes document camera images and a description of a demonstration where you role-play the parts of a seed and the germination of a seed. Students love this demonstration and will hope you will choose them to water you with a spray bottle! Making a construction paper model of a seed is a great way for students to learn the parts of a seed. A grading rubric for the assignment is included.
There is also a list of critical thinking questions regarding if a seed is alive or not, and directions are provided for an easy procedure to germinate common radish seeds.
