Worksheet Overview

Dandelion-type seed head


Seeds are really important to a plant - they are its babies! There are lots and lots of different sorts because there are lots and lots of different plants.


The plants produce a fruit and the seeds are inside this - like the little pippy seeds inside a strawberry.




To help the seed to grow into a new plant it is often important for the seed to be taken to a new place to start growing. The seeds are dispersed (spread around) by different things, such as the wind, water and even animals.
