Highly engaging and ready to go!! Five different inquiry centers designed to get students thinking and investigating plants. These centers allow students to apply their previously gathered knowledge of plants and deepen their understanding by answering a variety of questions. Each center allows students an opportunity to gather new information to help answer the question and an application activity to use their new learning. Most centers involve the use of technology but could be adapted if you don't have access to computers or iPads.
