Find three examples of the Fibonacci sequence in nature. Write a paragraph for each example. For each example, address the following questions:
How does the example relate to the Fibonacci sequence?
What portions of each item or situation display the Fibonacci sequence?
How could the Fibonacci sequence help you solve a problem involving the item or situation?
I was thinking about writing about a pine cone, a a seed head on a sunflower or something similar, and the petals on a flower that has three, five, etc petals. I fell that when I am addressing the first question, I would be answering as well because in the first question I would mention the amount of petals or something and then in the second question I would say that the petals display the Fibonacci Sequence. That makes sense, right? What I'm not sure about is the last question. How would I answer it?

you are on track. The last question: could you predict the next numbers observed?

I think I might use a nautilus shell.The growth of the shell is concurrent with the Fibonacci Sequence.

If I used two rabbits mating I could use the Fibonacci Sequence because they would have 1,1,2,3,5... Then for the third question, I could say that it would help me determine how many rabbits there are, right?
