Children and adults alike are prone to believe that if a little of something is good, more is better. In the case of this story, your students will probably believe that if fertilizer is good for growing plants, it must be good for germinating seeds. Children are often under the impression that fertilizer is necessary for the health of plants just as vitamins are for people and animals. However, seeds and plants are entirely different things. It’s important to help them realize that most seeds come equipped with all the nutrients they need to germinate and basically only require warmth, oxygen, and moisture to begin growth.
