Investigating seeds in fruit

This term in Science, the Saplings Class are learning about seeds. First, we looked at a close-up image of banana seeds and strawberry seeds and we noticed that the banana seeds were in the middle of the fruit whilst the strawberry seeds were on the outside. Then we cut up lots of different fruit and used magnifying glasses to look at the seeds in detail. Finally we sorted the seeds into groups with different criteria, e.g. different sizes, colours etc.
