This interactive book about plants was designed with the proposed CCSS for first-grade science in mind. My students had a blast creating these and couldn't wait to take them home and show them to their families.
Included are both a color version and a gray-scale version.
The main areas covered are:
how people and animals use plants,
how plants adapt to different environments,
what kinds of soils plants live in,
what plants need to survive,
how people protect plants.
The plans also include a plant work of art and a plant ABC literacy activity.
