Parts of a Seed

I appear dead before I am alive
Although often quite small, inside my skin a tree can live
I can survive hundreds of years without food or water
I can be as small as dust or as large as a football
Humans and animals eat me
I can fly, swim, and hitch a ride
I can survive freezing, fires, and intense droughts
What am I?

 

 

 

Discussion Questions:
Are seeds alive or dead?
Does the size of the seed determine the size of the plant?
Are tree seeds huge?

 

 

Draw and label the interior and exterior of a seed, using this model.
