Through Tomatosphere™, your students will investigate the effects of outer space on the germination of tomato seeds. This is a hands-on program that builds scientific inquiry and experimentation skills.
What are the main parts of plants and what functions do these parts they serve for plants?
Students will work collaboratively to design and build a device that is able to sort seeds by size.
6 images of some seeds which are the fertilized part of a plant used for germinating new plants such as fennel, kiwis and pumpkins
Students develop and apply the skills of observing, comparing & contrasting, and communicating as they explore life cycles of familiar plants.
5 images of some flowerheads such as petunias and lilies that start as a narrow base and widen to an open shape
7 images of some symmetrical flowerheads such as asters and sunflowers whose petals radiate from the centre of the flower
3 images of some asymmetrical flowerheads such as an iris and an Orchis Sima or Monkey Orchid
8 images of some flowerheads such as roses and water lilies whose outer petals are longer than the petals in the centre of the flower
Students will work collaboratively to design and build models of seeds that can travel as far as possible.
