Kids Go Gardening - - Spring -

As the weather warms up, a seed soaks up wa­ter from the soil and ex­pands. Its seed coat softens and cracks. A lit­tle em­bryo (a teeny plant wait­ing in­side the seed) grows its first root and then a shoot which grows up to­wards the light and gets its first leaves. The seedling is on its way to be­com­ing a grownup plant which will grow flow­ers and seeds of its own.
