I first tried to work my way through teaching about plants at the very beginning of the year. I’d just switched schools so I used the stuff my district had given me. It covered the basics, but I wanted more. A lot more!! I wanted hands on activities, lab work, activities, critical thinking, cause and effect, sequencing – THE WORKS! This unit has 2 weeks worth of lessons and activities to keep your budding botanists busy in the classroom. We’re going to cover everything from the beginning stages of a Plant Life Cycle to the ins and outs of Photosynthesis, Pollination, and Chlorophyll extraction!
I have another Spring Unit I am just about finished with that will go hand in hand with this one and our study of living things. Look for it to post later today or early tomorrow. My Facebook fans will probably be the first to know so if you don’t already “like” Falling Into First on Facebook, you might want to check it out. 🙂
One last thing about plants. Have any of you tried Kale “Chips” before? The Mr. baked these up for us yesterday and I was popping them like potato chips! We seriously at half of the tray as soon as they popped out of the oven! Sometimes plants taste G-O-O-D!!
