The embryo inside a seed is asleep until it germinates. Some seeds are dormant and will only become active after a certain environmental occurrence, such as fire, a certain length of time chilled, or light. The seed first takes in a lot of water, which causes it to expand and break the seed coat as well as signaling the embryo to start to grow again.
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.
1. Use science and process thinking and skills
2. Manifest scientific attitudes and interests.

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.
