"Inside the seed is a stem and two leaves. This is an embryo, which is a baby plant." - Averi and Christopher
"The plant has a life cycle. It starts off as a seed, and the seed is in the seed coat. Then when it grows it's germinating. It needs water to germinate. Then the embryo grows into a seedling. Then it gets older and it turns into a mature plant." - Jordan. Albert, J'Shawn, Farmata, and Destiny
"Flowers grow when it's an adult plant. And the flowers start as little buds. Mature plants have seeds that are inside pods. The pod protects the seeds inside." - Omayra, Brewster, Zachary, and Johnnie
"The seed coat protects the embryo if an herbivore wants to eat it or step on it. When you step on it, the seed coat fights back!" - Ethan, Viannelly, Jean, and Mamadou
"The cotyledon in the seed is the food for the embryo or the plant. A seed needs food to grow. It needs that food because it helps it grow - it can't make its own food yet because it's the plant can't catch any sunlight to make food. When the plant turns into a seedling the cotyledon is in the middle of the plant and it shrinks." -Farmata, Averi, Dianne
