Observing the seed with a magnifying glass.
|They had to label the parts of the seed after they learned about the different parts. They also had to write about what they found inside the seed in their "Inside a Seed" booklet.|
We used these cute: Watch-it-Grow Window Green House from Lakeshore to plant seeds in a bag the next day.
The wrote about the steps it took to plant their seed in a bag, using the transitional terms first, next, then, last or finally.
By Friday many of our seeds began to grow and they filled out their growing bag log.
Now for the FREEBIE!! If your students study plants and you want your students to create an "Inside a Seed" booklet here a copy of the patterns. You can print the booklet on white or tan card stock or construction paper, attach 5 pieces of paper and staple along the side. Have students cut them out or you may want to cut them out in advance.
