3rd Grade Science- Unit 2

Plant Growth and Development

                Third graders and learning all about plants and how they grow and develop.  Our unit started out with students examining the inside of a seed and identifying the seed coat, embryo, and cotyledon.

  In the pictures below you will find students planting Wisconsin Fast Plants which complete their entire life cycle in just six weeks. Each pair of students received a Styrofoam quad. Look at the diagram below to see what the inside of each students quad looked like at the end of our lesson.  Students will begin to visually see their plant growing after the third day. Check back soon to see our progress throughout this unit!
