The girls became very interested in seeds during our exploration of apples. We decided to go to the farm and see if we could find any other kinds of seeds. We had an amazing seed hunt with Mrs. Riddle.
We continued to explore all kinds of seeds in the room and have also been keeping watch over our tomatoes. Still waiting patiently for our tomatoes to turn red!!

Then we made some further investigations. What seeds can you eat?
Not apple seeds
Birds eat seeds
Squirrels eat and bury some seeds for the winter
Here are two ears of corn. What do you see? How does the corn smell?
This one has gross stuff on it…black stuff
It smells bad
This one smells yum!!
It’s not so mushy
We then planted the seeds and are waiting and watching. We will keep you posted on what happens next.
