Seed Investigations

Today we started some seed investigations!  We read the book "Fruit is a Suitcase for Seeds"  and then we cut open some fruits and vegetables and pulled out the seeds.  We did things like- comparing the size and shapes of the seeds.  We discussed the following questions - Does the size of the food determine the size of the seed? Does the size of the food determine the number of seeds?  And all while we did this investigation we were learning....and not just science, as one student yelled out, "Hey, Mrs. Potter, we are doing math too!!" :)

Special Thanks to Mr. Young who picked up these fruits and veggies for me !

Enjoy some picture- have a great weekend!
