The students were excited to plant seeds this day, but for the first part of class we took the time to learn about the tiny seeds we plant. We talked about how the seed contains everything a seedling needs to sprout and we help it grow when we put the seed in soil and add some water and sunlight. The students looked at a diagram of the anatomy of a seed and we used vocabulary words such as shoot, seed coat and cotyledon. After we understood how seeds grow, the students got to plant some flower and cucumber seeds!
