Sub-Project: Discovering seeds
Description: Takes children on an exploration of plants, identifying them as living things, examining the parts of plants and giving them an understanding of what plants need to live and grow. They will nurture and appreciate the importance of plants and other living things. More importantly, show them that all plants come from seeds. Can you find the seeds in a plant?
“A Seed is Sleepy” by Diana Hutts Aston offers children a beautiful and informative look at the intricate, complex, and often surprising world of seeds. It’s a great book for vocabulary development, particularly the use of adjectives to describe seeds.
Collaborative Project: How do seeds differ from country to country or season to season? Is it easier to find seeds at different times of the year?
Learning Objective: identifying parts of a plant, vocabulary development (adjectives)
