This is a the template for a book that my second grade students recently made about plants. We created this while using the Fusion Science books. Regardless of what text you use, the content is relevant for anyone referencing NYS Elementary Science Standards and/or NGSS.
In this book, students explore what plants have, give, and need. They do so by organizing and labelling parts of a plant, identifying the parts of plants we eat, and using the needs of a plant to write a sequence of how to grow a plant.
My students also plant wheatgrass and bring their own sprouted plants home with the book to share with their family.
