    Description

    Are you ready for a Springtime STEM challenge that involves seeds? This one is specifically about the ways seeds are dispersed and it’s fantastic! And to make this even better- let’s add a little flipper booklet about seed dispersal, too!

    Note: These two resources are available individually.

    STEM Challenge Seed Dispersal Models

    In this challenge, students will be using materials to design and build a representation of one of the ways seeds are dispersed. Each group will be assigned one of the seed dispersal methods and then must determine which of the materials can be used to best build a model. Finally, the teams will share their creation and demonstrate how it works. Students will be incredibly creative in finding a way to disperse the seeds and will love sharing their final product. It should also be noted that this challenge would be great as a culminating activity for your study of plant growth and students should already have some knowledge of plants and the seed development process. I have included a seed dispersal chart for your convenience.

    You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes Balloons, Tissue paper, Paper clips, Rubber bands, Straws, Yarn, String, Foil, Masking tape, Cotton balls, Craft sticks, Pipe cleaners, Pan of water, Seeds, and other materials of your choice.

    The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 4 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list, 4 pages of photographs, two extra Hints pages, student lab sheet with sample answers, seed dispersal chart in four versions, materials lists for student use in three versions a scoring rubric, and editable form file, and a Terms of Use page. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

    This challenge will need 2 class session (2 hours) to complete.

    Seed Dispersal Flipper Book

    This amazing little booklet will have your students creating notes and a flipper booklet about several seed dispersal methods- some of which are quite interesting. The methods included are Dispersal by Attachment, Animals, Gravity, Wind, Water, and Explosion.

    Students will begin by explaining what seed dispersal is and then they write about each of the methods. Each page includes writing space for the seed dispersal method, a space for illustration, and space for listing types of seeds. A final research page can be completed with your choice of topic or the student’s choice.

    When students have completed the writing and illustrating, the flippers are easy to cut out and staple together. The templates in this product make one mini flipper book. The books are 8 x 5 inches in size when completed. They will fit in a composition notebook.

    Included are simple teacher directions, 2 choices of covers in color and 2 in black/white, the 8-page flipper book, an extra page if students need more space, and a poster set! The poster set includes 5 posters that illustrate one of the seed dispersal methods and tells a little about it. I also included a basic information page that you can use. Also included are vocabulary strips to display as you work. Sample answers are also in the resource.
