Content
Germination is a !rocess b #hich a seed de"elo!s into a oung !lant $seedling&. )he
embro in the seed de"elo!s into a !lant. In order for germination to ta*e !lace the seed
needs sunlight $tem!erature+#armth&, #ater $moisture& and air $o%gen&. If an of these
conditions are missing then the seed #ill not de"elo! !ro!erl or at all.
In the !rocess of germination first, the seed coats brea* and the first root gro#s
do#n#ard. Secondl, the main stem comes out and gro#s in the o!!osite direction
$u!#ards&. )hirdl, the first leaf a!!ears and the !rocess of !hotosnthesis begins.
,ourthl, since !hotosnthesis has began the lea"es get greener and the !lant continues to
gro#.
Introduction:
Students #ill be told the to!ic and ob-ecti"es of the lesson. )he #ill then com!lete a
./0 chart b saing #hat the *no#, #hat the #ant to learn and #hat the ha"e learnt.
Students #ill then "ie# a simulating "ideo of the gro#th of a !lant from the seed to the
shoot $htt!:++###.outube.com+#atch1"2!34ASd403b5& or
$htt!:++###.outube.com+#atch1"2G26u7%dr0mA&
Development:
1. A short discussion #ill be held on information from ./0
2. 'ontents of "ideo #ill be discussed b teacher and students.
8. Students #ill then "ie# a 9o#er9oint !resentation to assist them in their
understanding of the !rocess of germination and its related terms
$htt!:++###.!rimarresources.co.u*+science+science2c.htm&
4. 9u!ils #ill then be !laced into !airs and engaged in acti"it #here the !lace the
ste!s of germination in the correct order. )eacher #ill guide as needed.
Conclusion
9u!ils #ill !ut !ictures of the germination ste!s in order using gliff.com as #ell
as matching terms to their correct meaning.

Tools used:
&ouTube
Aou)ube #as to share a "ideo on the !rocess in"ol"ed in the germination of a seed #ith
students. )his "ideo !ro"ided a "isual re!resentation of ho# a seed de"elo!s into a !lant.
)his caters for "isual learners. Also, b seeing the actual !rocess it #ill hel! students to
understand #hat #as taught as #ell as retain #hat #as learnt.
Po"erPoint
It #as use to reinforce the conce!t of germination. 3 cementing the conce!t in this #a
students #ill be able to recall #hat #as learnt thereb being efficient in com!leting tas*s
relating to the conce!t of germination.
