Improving Math & Science Learning: Flower Power
Seed Dissection

Name

Prediction: What do you think the seed looks like on the inside? Draw it and explain it in writing underneath.

Observe and feel the bean seed and the corn kernel before they are soaked in water, and describe the color and texture. Use your ruler to measure these seeds.

Bean Seed

Corn Kernel

Observe and feel the bean seed and the corn kernel after they soak for four hours and describe any changes you see in the color, texture, and size (use your ruler to measure).

Bean Seed

Corn Kernel

Gently peel away the seed coat on the bean seed and pull apart the bean seed at the split. Draw what you see, and label the parts of your bean drawing.

Gently peel away the pericarp on the corn kernel and carefully open the corn kernel. Draw what you see, and label the parts of your drawing.

Conclusion: Do you see any differences between both seeds? Describe the differences.
