On  January 5, 2013,  Buyer said:
I love this unit, and plan on starting it this Tuesday. I notice that on one of your examples of the Daily tracking of the plants growth (poster) etc... that on day one there were already measurements on the poster. Do you plant them one day and then begin recording observations the next day? Also when you measure them do you just put the ruler on the top of the dirt and measure up or stick the ruler down in the dirt? I'm sorry for the questions, but I am so illiterate when it comes to anything "green". I do not have a green thumb LOL! Thanks so much!!!
On  January 5, 2013Karen Langdon answered:
Thank you! It is really up to you how you start out. I actually plant and have the kids measure on day one. I like it to be a genuine measurement of how tall the plants were when we started. So we plant, measure, and record on day one. It is one of those experiments that takes longer on the first couple of days, then becomes very quick towards the end. When we measure, we put the ruler at the top of the dirt and measure to the end of one of the leaves. This is tricky with the plants that don't have soil, so with those, I measure from the bottom of the stem. I usually choose one leaf with the child who is measuring, and help them hold it up to the ruler. We only measure to the nearest quarter of an inch as well - that is enough for little ones! I think as long as you are consistent, that will work. Good luck, and thanks for the purchase!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  September 24, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Can this unit be used on the smartboard......like the chart for the experiment on what plants need to survive?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 24, 2012Karen Langdon answered:
Hi! I suppose it depends on how you want to use it. Any document can be projected on the SMART board, so you could open the PDF and have it showing on the board. The unit as it stands is not an interactive whiteboard lesson, so I don't think you could record data in it and save it. Does this answer your question?
