Plants: Dissect a Seed

So simple, but brings the textbook picture to life…
Soak dried beans (from the grocery store) in water overnight.

Provide each student with a seed. They can identify and remove the seed coat.

Then, split the seed open and identify the cotyledon (seed leaf) and stored food (the bulk of the seed).
