This is the first of a series designed specifically for the younger scientists. This unit includes a variety of activities designed to build a conceptual understanding about plants. Aligned to NGSS Standards.
Here's what's included:
Activity 1: Sprouting Seeds: Students plant seeds in Ziploc bags and watch the sprouting process.
Activity 2: My Plant Project: Students choose from 4 seed types to plant. They then keep a journal and observe differences between their plants and those of classmates.
Activity 3: My Plant Journal: Students keep a journal on their plant and record observations in words and pictures.
Activity 4: Plant Life Cycle: Students examine pictures of plant growth and put them in order.
Activity 5: Parts of a Plant! Students learn about and label the different parts of a plant.
Activity 6: I Eat Plants: In this fun activity, students taste different plant parts. They follow up by making a graph of favorite parts.
Activity 7: Plant Bingo: To help review vocabulary from this unit, students play bingo.
An optional post test and grading rubric are also included.
