We have observed first hand that seeds contain tiny plants ready to grow. We noticed that seeds seem to have a skin or protective coat, that seeds can hold water and more. Many students found a tiny root and even leaves inside their seeds. It took a lot of intense observation to notice these things, as the seed parts were the same color!
We also learned through our reading that the largest seed in the world can be up to sixty pounds. This is bigger than the average first grader!!
