The project will be run through two parallel lines of collaboration.
- Students will gain an appreciation for the plants in their world.
- Students will develop an understanding of how plants grow.
- Students will gain an understanding of how plants are used by people
- Students will gain an interest in learning about plants by understanding the similarities in survival needs among all living things.
- Students will be able to sort, classify, and graph by manipulating different kinds of seeds and creating graphs to visually show what they have.
- Students will be able to identify and label the basic parts of a plant, including: root, stem, leaves, flower, and petals, by creating their own flower and explaining it to the teacher or their classmates.
- Introduce children to the concept that plants have various parts.
- Help students to understand the basic functions of each of these structures.
- Children will learn about plants and the elements (food, water, and sun) necessary for plant growth.
- The students will enhance their small motor skills by learning to measure with a ruler.
- The children will be introduced to graphs and will learn to display information through graphing.
- Children will learn to draw conclusions by comparing and analyzing the information found on graphs.
- Teach the children that all plants come from a seed.
- Help the students to understand that different kinds of seeds produce different kinds of plants.
- Familiarize children with the characteristics of seeds (ways various seeds are different and the same).
