Continuing on with our spring unit we have been learning about parts of a plant and their needs.  We learned a song, “Flower, Stem, Leaves, and Roots”, followed motions on our bodies pretending we were the plant and read a written copy of it.  This was done to differentiate our reading comprehension to our learners that are more musically inclined, and kinesthetic learners .

We then took what we learned from the song and the dance and created a diagram of a plant and labeled it’s parts and the things it needs to grow.

We then took beans and and put them in a little bit of water to see if we could get them to grow.  First we will just add a little water and put them in soil later once they’ve started to sprout a little bit.
