All living things make more of their own kind. My kindergarten scientists learned that a seed contains a baby plant and that flowers make seeds. Sometimes a fruit forms around the seeds. We also looked at the life cycle of pumpkin plants.
We learned that plants need water, sunlight, air, and soil to grow. Then we planted pumpkin seeds. We poured water on the seeds to soften the seed coats. How long will it be before they sprout? My biologists hope it will be on Halloween!
Let’s look inside a pumpkin. What will this pumpkin look like next week? What will happen to the pumpkin if we put it in the woods?
My scientists used fruit to further investigate sink and float. Why do some fruits sink while others float?
