Nature Study: Traveling Seeds

For our Nature Study this week we learned about how seeds travel. This time of year plants are making great efforts to make sure they will carry on to the next generation in the Spring. While it is a little sad to see the plants drying up, it is neat to see how they gently drift off to their resting places.

Picture 507We saw many types of grasses and flowers that use the wind to spread their seeds. The kids were able to see seeds blowing by and pull a few off the stem and help sow the the seeds with their own breath.

Picture 513We observed that other seeds use their bristly shapes to stick to fabric, animal fur, and feathers to travel and find fertile soil to grow. We noticed that seeds were stuck to our clothes as we walked along on our hike.

At the end of our nature hike I found a fort that somebody had built. The kids had a blast climbing inside and writing in their nature journals.

Picture 515 As we walked along, I was reminded of the eternal nature of our God…

The grass withers, the flower fades,
    but the word of our God will stand forever.
