This packet is so exciting.
All of life depends on things to survive.
Young are similar to their parents.
Each packet has literature suggestions, a list of the standards, a fact sheet describing the standards, vocabulary for posting, a student journal for exploring.
The plant activities are designed to support each of the standards. Many can be used for assessment.
Each packet includes experiments, explorations, and are followed by reflection.
I love the section on communication.
In the end they come up with a form of communication.
Students bring in baby pictures and talk about genes and traits.
