Seeds And Seeds NCERT Class 5

 

5. Seeds and Seeds

Gopal was waiting for his mausi’s family to visit them. They will be coming the next day for their holidays. He was thinking about all the fun and nice food that he would have with his cousins. Just then his mother called out, “Gopal, before you sleep, remember to soak two small bowls (katoris) of chana (gram).” She was going to his Bua’s house and would return only in the morning.

As he was soaking the chana, Gopal thought, “How will two small bowls of this be enough for eight persons?” So he soaked another two bowls of chana. When his mother returned the next morning, she saw that the chana were overflowing from the vessel. “How much did you soak?” asked his mother. “How did that happen!” wondered Gopal.

“You soaked too much! Anyway it is good, now I will cook half of them, and leave the other half to sprout. I can send these to your aunt. The doctor has told her to eat sprouts”, mother said. She tied half of the soaked chana in a wet cloth, and hung them up to sprout.

Discuss

  • What things are soaked before cooking in your house? Why?
  • What things do you eat after sprouting? How are they sprouted? How much time does it take?
  • Has the doctor or someone you know ever told you to eat sprouts? Why?

Do this and find out

Do you remember that in Class IV you did an activity with seeds? Now try another one.

  • Take some chana and three bowls.
  • Put five chana in the first bowl and fill it up with water.
  • Put a damp piece of cloth or some cotton wool in the second bowl. Now keep the same number of chanas in it. Make sure that the cotton wool or cloth remains wet.
  • Put the same number of chanas in the third bowl. Do not put anything else in it. Cover all the three bowls.

Tell and write

  • In which bowl did the seeds sprout? What difference did you see between this bowl and the other bowls?
  • Why did Gopal’s mother tie the chana in a damp cloth?
