Seed Scavenger Hunt
Just how many seeds does Montshire educator Amy have in her kitchen?! How many are in yours?? Join us for a seed scavenger hunt!
Download our activity sheet to help you on your search.
Seed Sorting Activity
Just about anything can be sorted — seeds, socks, crayons, rocks and more.
Sorting makes you look at how things are the same or different and then allows you to make decisions about which of those characteristics are important. This is an important skill scientists use all the time!
Got seeds or beads? Got socks or blocks? Got shells or buttons or coins or rocks?
Let’s get them sorted!
Download our activity sheet for more fun sorting ideas.
