Grade 1. The Discovering Plants Unit Kit includes a Teacher’s Guide, a prepaid coupon for living materials, and enough supplies and apparatus for a class of up to 24 students. During the unit, students discover what plants need to live and grow. Each young scientist plants a bean seed and the entire class plants and tends a class garden. Throughout the unit, they carefully uproot the plants to see and record what’s happening underground. The focus is on general plant similarities and differences, especially for the varieties in the class garden. Students also compare a pine seedling to their garden plants. Learning opportunities grow like weeds as students compare sprouting seeds, count emerging leaves, measure stem growth, and watch flowers unfold and seedpods develop. The unit concludes with students setting up simple experiments in the class garden to find out how light, water, and other growing conditions affect plant growth and health.
