Parts of a Seed Montessori
If you are anything like me, you love plants. You care for them and want your children to know just how amazing plants are.
There are so many different kinds of plants that our heads would spin!
But the truth is that all plants have some things in common.
One of those things that plants have in common is that they come from a seed.
Granted, seeds vary a lot in size, color, shape and amount of germination time, but in short, seeds produce life.
In this Montessori inspired unit study, we will embrace the natural homeschool side and learn about the parts of bean seeds!
Plants grow from little seeds and even the seeds are pretty incredible contraptions.
Montessori Parts of a Seed
Have you dissected a seed or have germinated bean seeds with your children?
Both are great activities to do with this Montessori printable bundle!
Just make sure that you put the bean seeds inside a folded paper towel.
Soak it completely and make sure it stays moist for about three days.
Check daily until you see that the bean seeds have germinated.
When they have, they it is time to plant them in the ground!
Anyway, back to the “Parts of a Seed” bundle!
Parts of a Seed Printable Bundle
This bundle will give children a pretty great idea on how the seed works.
In this bundle, we included two versions of the names of the 4 main parts of the seed.
We have the informal nomenclature: seed coat, stored food, embryo and first leaf.
We also have the formal nomenclature: testa, cotyledon, epicotyl and radicle.
These can be used for older children or for children that have learned the informal vocabulary first.
As you learn about the parts of a plant and parts of a tree, you will definitely want to include this parts of a seed bundle.
Use the seed nomenclature cards with the posters, the Montessori 3-part cards, word search and more!
