In this video, Jeanne Norris investigates plant life cycles through gardening. There are all kinds of plants in her garden including tomatoes and cucumbers. What are some things that you noticed about her garden? Each plant looked unique and had flowers or fruits on them. Some plants had seeds on them and some plants looked dead.
