Product Description

Perfect for Earth Day! In this extensive Botany STEM Challenge, students create window greenhouses and observe plant growth. Then they use the engineering design process to build a plant transportation device to safely carry their saplings home! This challenge also highlights Katherine Esau, a pioneer in Botany. History, science, engineering, and math-- it is all included along with teacher instructions and student handouts.

This hands-on activity includes a design challenge that allows students to work in teams, apply the engineering design process, and connect math topics to real-world applications. As a student-driven assignment, the purpose of the teacher is to act as a facilitator. You will provide the structure to the project, but students will take an active role in designing and building a plant transportation device to hold a plant that is watered. Our students have loved this activity, and we know yours will too!

This packet includes:

- Detailed teachers guide with links to resources

- Printable window greenhouse with instructions

- Plant anatomy handouts

- Student handouts to guide them through the engineering design process

- Student recording sheets for each step of the process

- Math connection problems including graphing, ratios, measurements, perimeter, area, and volume (applicable sheets in both SI and metric units).
