“All About Seeds” -- First Grade

First graders in Trinity and Barnard Schools participated in a program designed to introduce them to the concepts involved in seed germination. They explored:

  • Life cycle of plants
  • Pods collected from local flora
  • Parts of a seed making observations using magnifying lenses
  • Requirements for seed germination
  • Fiction and non-fiction books

The culminating activity involved growing and germinating bean seeds in the classrooms.
