Teach students about life cycles by learning about worms and the ways they benefit the garden and farms. Through reading literature and completing hands-on activities, the class will conduct a worm investigation and observe that the organisms (and other animals) need food, air and space to grow.
Students will make observations and build an understanding of the properties of common objects in the garden. They will share information about what is in the garden by describing the objects through illustration and descriptive writing.
Through a hands-on activity, students learn about mapping and construct a “bird’s-eye-view” picture of a garden bed. Students work together to make group decisions in planning a classroom garden.
Students learn about communication by exploring honey bees and comparing them to other insects and animals. This lesson introduces students to the collaboration and cooperative efforts required for honey bee survival.
Guide students in using scientific inquiry to observe and learn about several varieties of a vegetable. Create a line plot to record the results of a class tasting and interpret the data collected on the line plot.
