Oh, I just thought of another on how you can use more math ideas. Have
them write the numbers as they add them in each seed. They can have fun
with positive numebrs, negative, even fractions. If they are going to do
fractions,the goal might be for the final number/seed it has to be 1.
you know like one whole. The fraction should look like this 3/3 or
19/19. But if they are going to do fractions and seeds it sure will be
an awfully big fraction. Possibly the first one would be 1/634, then
2/634, 3/634, 5/634. Maybe they can do one large sunflower/cone. Then
photocopy each of the drawings 5 or six times so they have rough ones to
work their math on before the final one is turned in.
good Luck

only going to have 4-5 seeds.)
