New! All About Seeds!
First graders learn all about seeds. In this biology lesson, 1st graders discover: what a fruit is, what is inside of seeds, and how seeds are transported.
Students explore botany by completing KWL worksheets. In this seed transportation lesson, students define a list of vocabulary terms associated with botany and seedlings before completing worksheets based on assigned text. Students answer study questions about seed distribution and transportation in class.
From Seeds to Plants
Second graders review the process of plant reproduction and the role of seeds in that process. The students dissect a seed, analyze their finds, collect and record data, and make predictions about seed germination and plant growth.
Fruit and Seeds Project
In this nature worksheet, students observe 6 different fruits. Students cut each fruit in half and study the seeds inside. Students record their observations and practice writing the fruit names.
Estimation of Population Growth by Counting Offspring: Seed Multiplication
Students analyze a multi-seeded fruit, such as tomato, pepper, squash, watermelon, etc. They remove and count the seeds from the fruit and hypothesize/calculate the reproductive rate of that organism.
Students explore and plant seeds and observe their growth over time. In this seeds lesson plan, students explore the location of seeds on fruits and vegetables, learn what they need to grow, and eventually plant their own.
Earth: The Food We Eat, The Seeds We Sow
Students explore the importance of seed diversity for cultural and ecological stability/health. They discover what an heirloom seed is and why they are important to conserve.
Students explore seeds through dissecting, sorting, comparing and contrasting. They draw their observations of both a closed and open seed and then they label the parts of a seed. They brainstorm where seeds come from. They compare seeds by size and color.
Underground Vault Protects World's Seeds
Students share ideas about keeping things safe, then read a news article about a huge vault built to store billions of seeds. In this current events instructional activity, the teacher introduces the article with a discussion and vocabulary activity, then students read the news report and participate in a class discussion. Lesson includes interdisciplinary follow-up activities.
Here is a two-week unit on pumpkins! Kindergarteners read and discuss books about pumpkins and seeds, develop a list of pumpkin vocabulary words, estimate and count the seeds in a large class pumpkin, grow pumpkin seeds, and create computer illustrations of their pumpkin plants. This interdisciplinary unit would be perfect for the month of October!
All About Seeds!
How do fruits relate to flowers and seeds? Identify the seeds and their purpose with a coloring activity for kindergartners. Once they color the seeds of apples, bananas, and peas (among others), kids get hands-on experience with bean pods and potting soil.
