The Tiny Seed

The tiny seed is a perfect book to read in the spring. You can read this book when you are discussing plants and seeds.

Here are some activities you can do after you read the story:

  • Outline the sequence of seeds: from seed to plant to seed. Identify reasons why a seed does not germinate and plants do not grow.
  • Label the parts of plants.
  • Make a seed collection. Examine seeds with reference to shape, size, color and how they feel.
  • Match seeds to plant pictures.
  • Categorize seeds into those we eat and those we do not eat.
  • Experiment by growing different types of seeds in the classroom.
