Background For Teachers:
In a developing corn or wheat seedling (monocots), the epicotyl give rise to the stem and leaves, while the hypocotyl and radicle give rise to the roots. The embryo is partially surrounded by endosperm. The cotyledon stores food.
In the developing bean seedling (dicots), the epicotyl gives rise to the terminal bud, the leaves, and the upper part of the stem. The hypocotyl gives rise to the lower part of the stem and the radicle gives rise to the roots.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Hand out two UV beads per student. Do not tell them what they are, but ask students to make observations about them. Tell students to make a bracelet for these, and they can wear them all day while making observations.

The persistence and curiosity of children are sustained by adults who direct their attention, structure their experiences, support their learning attempts, and adjust the complexity and levels of difficulty of information for them.

A solid foundation in scientific inquiry strengthens many of the skill that people use daily, such as creatively solving problems, thinking critically, working cooperatively in groups, effectively using technology, and valuing life-long learning.
