PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Plants {An Integrated Science Unit for First Grade} was designed to cover first grade science standards taught in many first grade classrooms. The lessons within the unit are aimed at regular classroom students with differentiated activities included with each lesson for Gifted Learners. Students will have the opportunity to learn about plants, their needs, their parts, as well as plant seeds to monitor their growth as the plant’s needs are being met. Technology has been included whenever possible to enhance the learning experiences for the students. A pre and post assessment have also been included to aid in the instruction of your students.
