Fruits, Seeds and Their Dispersal

This series of activities, aimed at primary level, explores different aspects of fruits and seeds and looks at how and why they are dispersed. Children identify the main characteristics of fruits and seeds by making careful observations, drawing them and labelling their important features. They then group them according to their dispersal mechanism and use this knowledge to construct a simple dichotomous key. Produced by Science and Plants for schools (SAPS) this is one of a series of resources written to support plant science in the primary curriculum.
