This is a teacher led game to go along with an Elementary Unit on Growth and Changes in Plants. Students will better understand the life cycle of a plant and learn that plants produce many seeds in different shapes and sizes; seeds that don’t always produce plants, or produce plants that make it to full maturation in order to start the cycle over again. Students will identify the factors that may affect the survival of different seeds.
This activity is suggested as an instructional/review piece when teaching about pollination, producing seeds, different types of seeds, the life cycle of a plant and seed survival. This game gets students standing and moving around while learning about seed survival. It can also be used for a quick lesson hook/warm-up for a science lesson (including in older years, as review).
