First graders hypothesized and then dissected to find out. Many students thought they would see seeds within seeds within seeds. Others thought that they would see roots. One student thought there was green stuff that became leaves and brown stuff that was soil.
Once they saw the baby plants some were upset that we were discarding them.
Next week they will experiment to see which part of the seeds are important to get the baby plant growing. Perhaps they will forgive for trashing the seed remains.
