What educators are saying

Very nice for my self contained special education students!!! pictures were concise and font was simple and readable. even my lowest student was able to participate.
This is exactly what I needed to use with my first graders. We are growing beans in the classroom and this went right along with learning about plants and plant growth.


This cute and colorful ( UPDATED MARCH 2016) - 91 page plant unit will get your kids excited about how things grow. It is a complete study of plants covering first grade common core science standards as well as many reading and language standards. In it you will find many printables that may be used as assessments for science and language arts, anchor charts with essential questions, and activities that could be used as word work activities or language center activities. Be sure to download the preview for more information. Also be sure to check out our Planting Numbers to 120 unit for a great math complement to this unit. We also have a fun freebie- Plants ABC Order.
