Listen to one of Darwin's plant experiments and then formulate the required steps to create your own. Finally, think critically about the differences between weather and climate.

Digital Version Tips

  • It is intended for a paperless, 1:1 tablet/iPad classroom
  • Ask students to download a PDF editor app if they don't already have one. It needs to have a save function as well. I used Foxit PDF.
  • Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with students.
  • When complete, ask students to save the file in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)
