Module 7: How to germinate seeds (1-3)

  • There are 3 sections to this module. In module 7A, pupils set up a range of different germination trials, testing either the seeds they collected in module 5, seeds provided by the teacher or packeted commercial seeds.
  • This module uses basic equipment.
  • In module 7B - a play-decide game introduces the concepts of seed dormancy and germination. It provides information on typical dormancy behaviour and suitable germination conditions, challenging children to make decisions about the temperature and light conditions that seeds might need in order to germinate.
  • In module 7C, the children complete further germination trials, but this time using more sophisticated equipment .
