Being a Botanist

On the 8th of May we got a Lima bean and investigated if seeds were living or not. We decided that a seed was living at the end because of all of the reasons like “A seed needs to be alive already or else it wouldn’t grow.”
We got a hard Lima bean and a sheet and had to draw what it looked like in the outside and what we thought it would look like in the inside. Next we got a soaked Lima bean and we split it in half. The wet Lima bean was in water for three days. Inside, the Lima bean was yellow and soft. In the middle there was a cotyledon that helped the embryo. The embryo goes down to find a spot for the roots to be planted and then it will go up so the plant can get light to grow.
