The "Exploration of Seeds" packet mixes a bit of science
with a variety of math skills: Data collection & analysis, sorting, comparing & contrasting, predicting, guess-timating, counting, sequencing, greater than, less than & equal
to, plus graphing
I've also included a descriptive worksheet
as well as an emergent reader
, so you can add a splash of language arts
There are also 19 photo posters
. Scatter them around your students' investigations to make an interesting bulletin board
, or use them as flashcards to check comprehension
after you've done your investigation.
Students could choose one and practice using adjectives
to describe the photo, or use several as writing prompts
You can do the exploration activities as a whole group
, or set things up as a center
and have students work independently on their own seed worksheets.
I've included a letter home to parents
asking for donations, so that you can study the seeds of a pumpkin, apple, sunflower
, and watermelon
, as well as kernels of corn
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy examining seeds as much as mine do. Wishing you a wonderful fall.
