We were surprised to find that the majority of people come to the Fast Plant website
through a Google or Yahoo search for plant life cycle
. We also realized that we could improve our life cycle webpage
by using a mouse rollover to show details about each step in the Fast Plant life cycle
while still displaying the entire cycle. Tell us what you think about this way of sharing life cycle info -- what else would be helpful? How do you teach about plant life cycles with Fast Plants? Have you seen the Final Seed Challenge
activity that includes directions for making a model of a germinating seed from a kitchen sponge? It's a great way to show how roots and shoots unfold from their seed coat.
