A Seed Search

20140522-164005-60005668.jpg

The kids have been really good at finding seeds to share with the class and to add to our collection at the science table. Today I brought in some fruits to share so we could discover some more seeds and take a look at some new fruits we may not have seen or tried before. So we made our guesses of what we thought the seeds were like in each – a watermelon, cantaloupe, mango, kiwi and dragon fruit and found a few surprises. It was fun to try some new foods and compare how seeds can be so different depending on the plant.
All week at the writing table we have challenged our students to guess the different mystery vegetable seeds. We will check out the entries tomorrow and see if there is anyone who got all 5 guesses correct to win a prize 🙂
