P3 Science – Tuesday 26 May

Seed Dispersal

Last week we looked at seeds a bit more closely. Sadly, my experiment at home has not worked quite as expected! I’ll plant a different runner bean seed and see if I can get some better results to show you soon.

The first thing I’d like you to do today is to think about what happens when people are not there to plant seeds. Plants were in the world before humans and most grow without any help from us. So, how do seeds move from the plant they come from to the place they begin to grow?

Discuss your thoughts with someone at home.

Now watch these clips from BBC Bitesize:

Your task today is to draw and label a picture showing three different ways that seeds are dispersed. At the top of the page, you should write the title ‘Seed Dispersal’. Make your picture colourful with labels clearly showing what type of seed dispersal you have drawn. You should have a short explanation, in your own words of how each type of seed dispersal works.

I’d love to see some of your drawings on Teams.

Have a lovely day!
