This activity involves designing a seed packet for seeds that have come from a newly discovered plant.
It stimulates discussion on what the seeds need to grow and how to care for the young growing plant. It gives the students an opportunity to write instructional texts and requires some creative thinking in the design of the packet. This provides useful opportunities for developing literacy and presentation skills as well as being a good end-of-topic activity.
