Seed Laboratory | Juan Cabrillo

Today we examined different kinds of seeds and wrote down our observations. Frank and I split the kids in half …

One table passed around clear bags, filled with different seeds (but unlabeled!) and wrote comments on what the seeds looked like and some guesses on what the seed would become if planted. Some seeds were large, others super tiny. Some seeds were white, others black. Some seeds were round and some were flat. Many students correctly guessed the squash and sunflower seeds; but others were much trickier to identify.

The other table dissected blanket flowers that had developed seeds on the inside. These seeds were a challenge to find inside the papery petals but many kids found them!
