Plant Unit

I have had plants on my mind these last several days.  I knew we were going to be learning about plants after returning from Spring Break, and I really wanted to create something new for my kiddos.  I knew Spring Break would give me the perfect opportunity to put together exactly what I had envisioned.  I really like to make my units into booklets, because it keeps the prep work to a minimum, and my students  just love them.   I'm all about a fun filled unit I can simply staple together and go.  This unit is just that. We've already covered All About Books, so this just had to have an All About....Title.


For each plant part, there is an overview to teach that plant part, and a follow-up page for students to write what they learned about that plant part.  Basically, what did they add to their schema? I plan to read several trade books about plants, also.  Gail Gibbons has some great ones!


Here are a few of the goodies inside this resource:




Before learning about each plant part, students will write 
what they already have in their schema about that plant part on this schema recording page.


This unit also includes:
*  Plant Hokey Pokey (Song to Teach the Parts of the Plant)
*  A Cut/Paste Venn Diagram to compare a flower and tree
* Plant Thinking Map
* Plant Poem
*  Flower Diagram that students can label.
