In Science today we discussed the different ways that seeds are spread in nature. The cattails in the room were ready, so we broke one open to look at the teeny, tiny seeds. Then we went outside and let them fly in the wind. The kids were surprised at how they flew through the air. It reminded them of blowing snow. They loved this science lesson! Then we came back in and wrote about it in their nature journal.
There are so many seeds in one cattail!
They were concerned that cattails were going to grow on the playground.
