Examining Seeds and Observing Growth

The Concept: The children will learn that, like an animal, a plant follows a life cycle as it develops. Children will use a hand lens to examine dry and soaked seeds. They will describe the physical properties, comparing the sizes and shapes. They will remove the seed coat to reveal the new plant. They will begin a study of plants and gardening by planting their seeds.
