Building Blocks of Science® A New Generation: Discovering Plants Unit Kit

(backordered: in stock 7/14/22)


Grade Pre-K/TK. The Discovering Plants Unit Kit includes a Teacher's Guide 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. They examine seeds, plant them, and tend to them as they move through the life cycle from seed to plant. Students examine all parts of the plant up close—including the roots—to observe and record what each looks like and what it is used for during the life cycle. Students focus on general similarities and differences between plants, contrasting several types in the classroom and out in the natural environment, comparing sprouting seeds, counting emerging leaves, measuring stem growth, and watching flowers unfold and seedpods develop. The unit concludes with students designing and executing simple experiments using the class garden to find out how light, water, and growing conditions can affect plant growth and health.
