- The Life Cycle of a Plant - A simple lifecycle activity and reference page
- Mini Book - Plant Vocabulary mini-book to help students learn simple vocabulary before moving on to more complex experiments
- Plant Growth Journal - Students will grow their own small plants in the classroom and track the growth using scientific observations.
- Lettuce Experiment - Students will explore how the structure of a plant is uniquely designed to help it absorb water.
- Environment Experiment - Students will observe four different plants under different controlled environments to answer the question "What do plants need to grow?"
Also includes a digital Google Slides version of all student pages that can be uploaded easily into GOOGLE CLASSROOM. Digital Pages include:
- Student reference pages (parts of a plant, plant life cycles, vocabulary), Plant Vocabulary Digital Mini-Book, click-and-drag parts of a plant labeling activity, click-and-drag life cycle of a plant labeling activity, Plant observation journal student instructions and student observation pages, Lettuce Experiment student instructions and student observation pages, Environment Experiment student instructions and student observation pages.
Much of this unit asks students to make scientific observations as they grow their own plant(s) in the classroom. This can be done very economically by growing beans, peas, or radishes in a clear plastic cup (“Solo-cup” size), in simple potting soil.
The three experiments come with guiding inquiry questions. Printables to help experiment success are also included.
