Today we wrapped up our seed study with a celebration of one our our favorite seeds we eat, popcorn! The children were delighted to watch the kernels pop from the heat of the air popper and even more delighted when we got to eat it! At the beginning of our study, the children shared what they knew about seeds and what some of their wondering questions were. As we end, they reflect and share what they learned. They also posed with their favorite seed from the collection they helped create.
