By participating in a seed scavenger hunt, learners examine many adaptations of seeds, including how many seeds a plant makes, how those seeds travel to new locations, and what protects them from predators and weather. Learners consider why dispersal or spread of seeds is important to the survival of plant species as they identify seeds that fly, seeds that float on air, seeds that cling to other things that move, and more. This activity can be done in conjunction with the Local Field Guide activity from the same source, and is great for an outdoor field trip. This activity can be found on pages 26-27 of the activity guide.
