Animals in surroundings in Seed Dispersal – Class 7 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Seed Dispersal

Activity Name: Animals in surroundings in Seed Dispersal

Activity Description:

In this experiment, students are encouraged to observe and document the different animals present in their surroundings. The focus is on understanding how animals play a role in seed dispersal.

Required Items:

  1. Notebook/journal
  2. Pen/pencil
  3. Camera (optional)

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Find a suitable location in your surroundings, such as a park, garden, or natural area, where you can easily observe animals.
  2. Take your notebook/journal and pen/pencil with you to record your observations.
  3. If you have a camera, consider taking photos of the animals you encounter for documentation purposes (optional).
  4. Spend some time quietly observing the animals in the area. Be patient, as some animals may be shy or well-camouflaged.
  5. Note down the following details in your journal: a. Type of animal (e.g., birds, squirrels, insects, etc.). b. Behavior of the animal (e.g., flying, hopping, crawling, etc.). c. Any signs of seed dispersal activities by the animals (e.g., birds eating fruits and dropping seeds elsewhere). d. Other relevant observations about the animals’ interactions with their environment.

Experiment Observations:

Precautions:

  1. While observing animals, maintain a safe distance and avoid disturbing their natural behavior.
  2. Do not feed the animals, as this can disrupt their diet and natural habits.
  3. If you encounter any wild or potentially dangerous animals, ensure your safety and maintain a safe distance.
  4. Respect the environment and leave no traces behind. Do not litter during the observation.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Through this experiment, students will learn about the diverse range of animals present in their surroundings and how they contribute to the process of seed dispersal. By observing animals’ interactions with plants and seeds, students will gain insight into the vital role animals play in maintaining ecosystems and promoting plant growth and diversity.
