Seeds Grow Inside the Ovaries of Flowers April 23, 2010

Filed under: 2009-2010 School Year — gardenexplorer1 @ 6:24 am

Kindergarteners looked carefully at pollinated flowers making the transition to becoming fruit. They found all stages of fruit development — flowers; flowers that had tiny seed pods growing inside; flowers that had dropped their petals and left a tiny seed pod along with the stamen; and seed pods at various stages of growth with no flower attached.

They also found several different kinds of plants that have gone to seed –unintentionally and intentionally. English peas, sweet peas, broccoli, radishes — all with seed pods.
