PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Plants are fascinating! Teaching about plants engages the natural curiosity in children. It gives them a sense of satisfaction in creating something (the plant) and appeals to their curious nature as they hypothesize, make observations, and draw conclusions. They are fascinated by how quickly the seed changes, the plant grows, and how large it gets. Oftentimes they even connect with their plants!

Beans are an ideal choice. They sprout quickly, they grow quickly, and it is intriguing to think that something that could potentially end up on the dinner table (dried beans) can become a plant with the right conditions and care!

In this unit, students will:
* Learn about the parts of plants and what plants need to grow
* Make hypotheses
* Measure and observe
* Create a line graph
* Draw conclusions
* Create their own experimental design
* Reflect on the experiment
* Present their findings in an informative poster
* Practice presentation skills

Included in this 53 page Scope and Sequence Integrated Curriculum:
* The 10 Week Overview defining previous student knowledge, Teacher preparation, Materials and Time Needed
* Detailed Procedural Plans for each segment of the unit
* 36 pages of Student recording sheets
* A bean growth chart defining vocabulary
* Pictures of examples of student work for student reference

Hone in on students' natural curiosity with this high-interest Science and Math curriculum!
