This resource contains two investigations. One investigation is led by you as a guided experiment. Students gain exposure to new concepts, and practice following the scientific method as the teacher models quality questioning, writing and procedural techniques.
Then, the second experiment releases some of the independence to the kids as they design their own investigation to learn about the germination of seeds.
This resource includes:
directions- including ideas for student led investigations
sample schedule for the activities
vocabulary word cards
Frayer model vocabulary graphic organizer
Parts of a seed- color poster and student activity sheet
What a Plant Needs- color poster and student activity sheet
Tropism posters- phototropism, gravitropism, thigmotropism, positive tropism and negative tropism
Group investigation sheets
Independent student investigation sheets
(3) three written response sheets

This would be a great homeschool resource as it does not require a group to conduct the activities.
