This file is zipped for faster downloading. A fully integrated math, science and cross-curricular writing plan including foldable and suggested uses. This one page (double-sided)foldable can be used to track this investigation from beginning to end. Real world skills of measurement, and using simple machines to make work easier tie in nicely as well as the obvious science concepts centered around the parts of a plant and the scientific method.

This project is a great alternative to traditional class parties at halloween. Plus it doesn't leave anyone out due to religious beliefs.
