Students will be involved with hands-on activities that include classification of 12 species of tree seeds, identification of seed shapes and forms and differentiation of various methods of seed dispersal. Kit includes 24 seeds (two samples of each type of tree seed), a reproducible Seed Identification Key, and a handout containing a detailed background section, easy-to-follow procedures, teacher tips and extension activities.
