Seeds 1

Seeds.  Most of us eat seeds every day.  For instance, there’s seeds in Weetbix, bread and buns.  The humble seed is essential to our lives and the lives of many of our animal friends.

In this honour, you’ll learn the purpose of seeds – which no doubt you already know!   There are the basic parts of a seed such as the seed coat, cotyledon, and embryo.  You’ll know how seeds are scattered and what conditions are necessary for a seed to sprout.  You’ll know about seeds that are used for food, oil and spices.

For the hands-on part, you will collect 30 different seeds.  This is a most enjoyable and interesting honour and not to be overlooked!
