This week’s theme is spring. Our “Growing Minds Day by Day” educational resource lists are designed for families and educators to use during COVID-19 and beyond.
A young boy and his dog are sick of winter, so they plant a garden and begin to wait. And wait, and wait. Just when it seems as though the brown will never become green, spring magically appears! This book is a quick read that benefits from paying close attention to the beautifully illustrated pages.
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.
Guide students in using scientific inquiry to observe and learn about several varieties of lettuce. Create a line plot to record the results of a class tasting and interpret the data collected on the line plot.
