This file is a 20 page download of my If I Planted a Jellybeans creative writing unit. I pose the question of planting a jellybean to my class. I take them through several activities for them to form an opinion about if they think it will grow or not. Then I pull a little trick by adding Zinnia seeds to our potting soil when we plant. The surprise on their faces is priceless when the flowers begin to bloom. It is a wonderful spring surprise.
