Little Brown Seeds

Little brown seeds so small and round,
Are sleeping quietly under ground.
Down come the raindrops sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle.
Out comes the rainbow, twinkle, twinkle, twinkle.
Little brown seeds way down below,
Up through the earth they grow, grow, grow.
Little green leaves come one by one.
They hold up their heads and look at the sun.

How does a seed become a plant?

Try This

There are many seeds to plant in the spring. Get started inside by soaking a cotton ball with water and put a popcorn kernel in it. Place in a paper cup and cover with plastic wrap. Secure with a rubber band. Put it in a window where it will get sun. Check every day to see if the seed has sprouted. Talk about how plants grow.
