This The Germination of a Tree lesson plan also includes:
Is a seed alive? What does it mean to be dormant? What triggers a seed to start growing? Through a lab, a microscope activity, two short videos, and a reading, young botanists discover the secrets behind seeds. Lab partners will have the opportunity to germinate their own tree seeds. It would be a great extension to have kids plant their seedlings for Arbor Day or Earth Day, but make sure they are planted in an appropriate place for the size the tree will become.
