1st Grade Science Learning Activity: Traveling Seeds
In this activity we’ll learn about traveling seeds. Trees, flowers and plants all grow from seeds. Each seed needs to travel away from the parent so that it has room to grow. They can’t just get up and walk away though, so how do these seeds travel? In this activity you’ll learn several ways that seeds travel.
This course can be found in our 1st Grade Science curriculum.
Students learn to perform experiments and record observations, and understand how scientists see the natural world. They germinate seeds to observe plant growth, and make a weathervane. Students will explore topics such as:
- Matter—states of matter; mixtures and solutions
- Weather—cloud formation; the water cycle
- Animal Classification and Adaptation—insects; amphibians and reptiles; birds; mammals
- Habitats—forests, deserts, rain forests, grasslands, and more; naturalist John Muir and conservation
- Oceans—waves and currents; coasts; coral reefs and kelp forests; oceanographer Jacques Cousteau
- Plants—germination, functions of roots, stems, flowers, chlorophyll, and more
- Human Body—major systems; Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman doctor
- Light—how light travels; reflections; inventor Thomas Edison
