Library Learning Patch - Children Discovering Nature
Week 5 - How Seeds Travel
Heavy rain kept the group inside this week, so they caught up on their mini-books and  learned all about how seeds are disbursed. The children learned that seeds travel by wind, water, and animals.

The reading selection was The Tiny Seed.



Making our mini-books

Some seeds have hooks that help them stick to an animal's fur. Examples are sweet gum balls and pine cones. The children examined both with magnifying glasses. Very interesting!



Fascinating!


I see the hooks!

 An example of our mini-books:

The children then played a question and answer game reviewing what they have learned so far in the meetings. Fun!

Next week, weather permitting, will be an outside day--planting tomatoes and squash, weeding, etc.

Drive by and check out progress!
