Seeds… how do they grow?

One of the questions we had on our KWL grid was:

What do seeds look like?

We used magnifying glasses and microscopes to look at the seeds in more detail and then had a go at sketching them in our sketch books.

Another question we had was: How do plants grow? 

We have set up some greenhouses that stick to the window so that we can see how a seed germinates and we found that we had more questions that we wanted to ask. We have learnt that plants need air, water and sunlight to grow.

We planted different seeds to see if they all germinated in the same way. We planted sweetcorn, peas, tomatoes, pumpkins and carrots. Come back in a few weeks to see what we have found out.
