LIFE CYCLE OF THE APRICOT
Start from the bottom. Can you name all the stages?
Pinky: What does this represent? What are the white dots representing? Male or female?
Ring Finger: What is this part called? Find out what the parts of it are. Male or female?
Middle: Why is this little guy and his mates important to the process of producing fruit? What other animals can help with this process?
Pointer: When the seed starts to grow, what does it do? Can you explain the process of germination?
Thumb: The end product! YUM! What different types of apricot are there? How can scientists help to create different types? What would they do to change them? (Think of the male/female parts)
