    I love it when fall hits in earnest, the weather turns cooler and the colors turn warmer. Fall is also a great time of year to collect seeds for next year. In today’s Science Corner, I want to share with you how to make a seed board to display what you have collected.

    Collect the Seeds

    The first step in making a seed board is to collect the seeds.
    Where to get seeds:

    • Buy at the store — You can purchase packets of a variety of seeds;
    • Raid the kitchen — Many of the fruits and vegetables we eat have seeds you can collect;
    • Check your garden — The home garden can be a great source of mature seeds;
    • Head outdoors — A nature study walk will provide the opportunity to acquire a variety of seeds.

    One fun way to collect seeds outdoors is to put on a pair of white tube socks over your students’ shoes. Then, have them run through a field of wildflowers. The sock will pick up a bunch of seeds which you can pick off and mount.

    A garden plan for the whole family

    The following are all things you can talk through and plan (which will all involve math, reading, and science!):
