In today's lesson, we will be learning all about how tomato plants grow. We will be looking at the different stages of germination and what happens to the plant before it has grown enough to produce fruit. At the end of the lesson, we will be planting a thick tomato slice into some soil, so we are able to observe the growth. You will need a pot/container, soil, and 1 thick tomato slice. If you do not have these things, you will still be able to watch me plant the seeds.
