This is one activity out of the Project Learning Tree Pre K-8 Environmental Education Activity Guide. Project Learning Tree® (PLT) is a program of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative that offers high-quality instructional materials for grades PreK-12 to increase students’ understanding of the environment and actions they can take to conserve it. This lesson is STEM activity #43 entitled: “Have Seeds, Will Travel”. The two essential questions are: Which seed characteristics are successful adaptations for effective dispersal? and How does dispersal change from species to species? In this activity students will be exposed to the characteristics for successful reproduction in plants and explore this concept while connecting science, technology, engineering, and math strategies.
Support through professional development workshops, summer institutes, online, and curriculum material is available for a nominal fee. https://www.plt.org/trainings/
