This seeds and plants hands-on unit supports 3.L.2 of the NC Essential Standards, but it is a well-rounded, fun and engaging, unit on seeds and plants for any middle to upper elementary student! This unit includes a virtual option. Please look at the preview to see EVERYTHING this unit includes.

I'm in charge of teaching my team's math and science and math comes first, so I need my science to be informative, fun, and not take too long on writing the information down. I love all of the foldable stuff, but it takes too long for my students. I would rather them be spending that time on a neat science activity than folding, cutting, coloring, and gluing. I found a way for the students to still be accountable, but not take much time to get the learned information down. Plus, my students' notebooks still look awesome at the end of the year - maybe just not as cutesy!

This unit includes a lot of opportunities for students to really get immersed with plants! There are also beautiful word wall vocab cards, and my very popular, "Who Would Win" semi-interactive PowerPoint/Google Slide that your students will LOVE!

The unit test comes in a paper and a Google Forms version for automatic grading!
