We planted seeds, pollinated them, and then harvested new seeds in my classroom this year. My students were thrilled when they saw the new baby seeds in the bean pods! This is project based learning that students will never forget!
Next we ‘dug’ into learning about the stem, and leaves with another close read. Students loved this close read because they got to work in partners to code the text and find new plant vocabulary words. After students independently close read about the flower, they got to dissect one in class. They enjoyed finding the pistil and the stamen.
