How do plants disperse their seeds? One way is through an adaptation called exploding seed pods. It’s not quite as dramatic as it sounds, but some plants have the ability to launch their seeds a good distance away from the parent plant. This helps ensure the young plant’s survival and increases its chances of getting the water, soil, and sunlight it needs to grow. In this seed dispersal activity and STEM project, students are challenged to build a model of an exploding seed pod.
Materials students need to bring:
- Sharpened pencil
- Small paper or plastic cup
