Product Description
This is a six lesson science performance demonstration for the primary grades which utilizes leaves while guiding the primary student through the scientific method – 1) exploration time, 2) writing a good investigative question, 3) making a prediction, 4) designing a plan, 5) gathering the data, and 6) writing a conclusion based on the data. A predetermined question is chosen for the class after the students carry out independent interactions with the leaves. Specific step-by-step directions are provided for each of the six lessons.

Added to the unit is a student investigative packet which is four pages in length and includes a pre-drawn chart for predicting and making a plan as well as a pre-made vertical bar graph for organizing and displaying the data. Materials, things to do prior to the investigation, and initial instructions are listed. A suggested property words poster which can be enlarged to display in your classroom is part of the handout. With some adaptation, the unit can easily be used in kindergarten.
