Life Cycle of Plants

Germination of a bean seed

Observe the sequence in which the different parts of a seedling emerge during germination. Can you think of why the seedling appears to move in circles as it grows? (hint: think of the function of leaves and the direction in which leaves grow!)
Observe what happens to the seed leaves on Day 16. What can you infer about the seed leaves after 16 days?

Germination of spinach seeds

Observe the position of the seed leaves of the spinach seeds after the seeds have germinated and the seedlings continue to grow. How does it differ from the position of the seed leaves of the bean seeds in the video above?
