Seed collecting, sorting and estimation

After going to the farm last week to collect seeds, we have been examining what we have. Students worked together this week and last to extract seeds from different plants and sort them.  Many were surprised to see how many seeds were inside of some of the vegetables, such as the Thai eggplant.

 .  

When we left the farm, Aj. Sandeep asked us to count the seeds in each vegetable.  Since there were so many seeds in the eggplants, we estimated the amount instead.

After sorting, counting, and estimating, the children have worked on labeling each group of seeds so that we can remember what they are.

   

Several students have taken action by bringing seeds in from home or ones they’ve found on the playground.  It will be great to see what we can grow!
