Amazing Seeds

Three cute activities introduce youngsters to seeds and roots. In the first activity, various soaked seeds are placed in a glass so that the direction of root growth can be observed. In the second, a bag of seeds is filled with water and left to sit overnight. Make sure to place it in a pan or bucket since the seeds absorb the water, expand tremendously, and burst the bag! Finally, seeds are planted in plaster to show that the roots can actually break it up as they grow.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
