What happened to the lucky seed that fell from the farmer's cart?

Story by Kim Ashmore | Animation by Cambridge English Online

Do you want something to do now?

Plant a seed and watch it grow, then tell us about it! 

  • Find a flower pot, or an old yogurt pot with a hole in the bottom.
  • Fill the pot with soil and put the pot on a little plate.
  • Choose a seed that is easy to grow like radish or a sunflower seed.
  • Make a little hole and put the seed in.
  • Water the seed a little every day and put the pot in a light place.
  • Watch the seed grow!

Write to us and tell us about your experiment!

Some science and some not!
Let's go for the science first!
1. The seed grow is right.
2. The leaf can make sunlights into plants food! Like a factoty.
3. Trees make their own seed and animals, wind carry it away (they don't want to tell the dreadful part: birds eat fruit, inside the fruit, there are seeds, bird poop out seed it fall down to the ground and grow)
Not science:
1 The buffalo didn't break the seed!
2 The seed can talk!
