Three Parts of a Seed and the Stages of Seed Growth

Today we learned about the three parts of a seed and the stages of its growth cycle.

The three parts are:

  1. The Coat
  2. The Food Storage
  3. The Embryo

The kids had a chance to look at a seed from the gourd seed packet and make observations about it. We then discussed the various sizes and shapes seeds come in and shared examples of each. Next, the kids took turns reading a short story about the stages of growth of a seed. We finished up the lesson by coloring and snacking on sunflower seeds.
