Let’s learn about seeds! This unit is a great addition to your science curriculum and includes eight “hands on” activities and experiments. Kids love to study real animals and plants. The photographs in this unit feature living plants and are from an award winning photographer.
The PowerPoint includes an introduction to seeds (featuring real photos). We included information and cool facts about seeds, how they form, how they grow, bean seed life cycle, parts of the seeds, how they travel and more. 40 pages.
Bulletin Board/Student Center
Includes seven full page color photos with more information about seeds.
• Seed Parts
• Seeds Are Everywhere
• How Seeds Form
• How Seeds Grow
• Life Cycle of a Pumpkin Seed

• Sprouting Seeds. Students place various seeds in a clear observation jar and study sprouting seeds. Observation worksheet included.
• Radish Root Hairs. Students sprout radish seeds and observe and study germination, roots, and root hairs. Observation worksheet included.
• Sorting and Graphing. Students sort various seeds into groups. Students count the seeds in each group and graph the results.
• Sorting and Graphing. Students sort various seeds into groups. Students glue each seed onto a bar graph display.
• Do Seeds Know Up and Down. Students place seeds in a clear observation jar and do activities to see if seed orientation has an effect on how roots grow. Students complete an observation worksheet and record predictions, results and conclusions
Students do simple experiments and make predictions, record results and form conclusions. Students record the results in a graph.
• Does Light Affect Seed Growth?
• Does Air Affect Seed Growth?
• Does Water Affect Seed Growth?
The teacher provides the pupils with student center information for this activity (included).
• Seed True or False - Students indicate whether statements are true or false.
• Seed Facts - Students complete a worksheet and identify seed and flower parts.
From The Developer:
As teachers we know how much children are fascinated with real animals and plants. We used photographs rather than drawings or clipart for this presentation. Our team has science and elementary teaching backgrounds and authored several dozen children's books related to using animals and plants in the classroom.
Standards for science and math including:
• Life cycles and adaptations of living things to their environment.
• Help students develop informational science literacy skills.
• Presents key science content and vocabulary found on most state tests.
• Scientific investigations and collecting data.
• Collecting data using bar graphs.
