Plant Survivor Lab

from Science Central

Program image

Students will learn what seeds need to germinate and grow into healthy plants. Our educator will lead a discussion into what plants are in their favorite foods. Students will work in groups, using teamwork to sort seeds by description. Become a “Plant Detective” and investigate how you can help plants be “Survivors!”

The Nature of Science
•Use a scientific notebook to record predictions, questions and observations about data with pictures, numbers or in words.
•Generate questions and make observation about natural processes.
•Make predictions based on observations.
•Discuss observations with peers and be able to support your conclusion with evidence.

Standard 1 – Core Standard: Observe, manipulate, sort and generate questions about objects and their physical properties.
K.1.1 Use all senses as appropriate to observe, sort and describe objects according to their composition and physical properties, such as size, color, and shape. Explain these choices to others and generate questions about the objects.
Standard 3 – Core Standard: Observe living organisms, compare and contrast their characteristics, and ask questions about them.
K.3.1 Observe and draw physical features of common plants and animals.
K.3.3 Describe and compare living plants in terms of growth, parts, shape, size, color, and texture.
