Rick Crosslin, scientist in residence, MSD Wayne Township joined us to take us through the process of making a “Garden Glove,’ a perfect project for kids!

Plants have played a critical role in life on our planet. They provide oxygen, medicine, clothing, and food for all of us.

Most plants come from seeds and from flowering plants that were first seen in the fossil record about 67,000,000 years ago, think T. Rex!

Flowers make seeds. They have male (stamen and pollen) and female parts (pistil and ovules).

Pollination leads to fertilization, and then to seed development.

Seeds Germinate, and they lay dormant to survive the winter. Then when they are warm and wet they germinate or split open and begin a new plant.
