Reflection: Flexibility Seed Structures - Section 2: Initial Seed Observations


When conducting this experiment, some seeds might go bad. If this is the case you need to get rid of the ASAP. This way the mold will not spread to the other seeds. For groups that lose a seed, I ask them to make note of it and explain why. I try to explain this what if before it happens. This keeps understanding amongst the students if a group was to lose a seed and also that they will not receive a replacement.

Seed Structures

Unit 7: Life Science
Lesson 3 of 14

Objective: SWBAT compare and determine how seeds are structured to support a plants growth.

Big Idea: Students have planted before, but have mainly done so to understand simple plant structures or life cycles. For this lesson students look at the seeds and make determinations on how their structure supports life.
