This is Alex, the african grey parrot. Sadly he died in 2007 :( But this proves that there are many smart creatures out there. ;)
We have been learning about seed dispersal. We were excited to hear that some animals eat the seeds then when the seeds come out the other end they grow in a new place. Who ever though!
To help us to understand seed dispersal we will make a paper helicopter just like a maple or sycamore seed. Where does it go? How far does it travel?
Listen to the song... Why do the seeds need to get away from the plants and trees?
