Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Seeds on the Move - Section 2: Viewing and Diagraming


I chose to have students view images/videos of seed dispersal so we could create schemas together about seed attributes, shape and its function, seed dispersal. Students are learning how seeds move, watching videos helps them see how the seed attributes contribute to different seed dispersal systems. We will use our observations to guide our work today and in the next lesson.
