STC Program: Plant Growth and Development, 3rd Edition

$9.99 - $349.99

Grades 2-4. Students plant their own seeds to begin an 8-week inquiry into the life cycle of a simple plant, the Brassica rapa in Plant Growth and Development. Using plants that complete their life cycle in 35 days, students are able to watch germination and maturation while learning about the specific parts of a plant and the function each serves. Because they care for their own seedlings, students learn that plants need light, soil, nutrients from soil, and water to survive.

Description

Grades 2-4. Students plant their own seeds to begin an 8-week inquiry into the life cycle of a simple plant, the Brassica rapa in Plant Growth and Development. Using plants that complete their life cycle in 35 days, students are able to watch germination and maturation while learning about the specific parts of a plant and the function each serves. Because they care for their own seedlings, students learn that plants need light, soil, nutrients from soil, and water to survive. In addition, students use dried bees to simulate the pollination process to understand the interdependence of bees and flowers. These activities deepen their understanding of the characteristics of living organisms and their relationship with and dependence on the environment in general. Throughout this unit, students are asked to use their observation and recording skills, complete and analyze data tables, use simple tools, draw diagrams, and apply scientific vocabulary.
