What Parts Are There to a Plant?
In this lesson, students will observe and document similarities and differences between parts of plants. It supports students interacting with nature and provides them with a framework for their observations by offering them opportunities to explore, question, and document similarities and differences among plant parts. Students will identify and sort plant parts through hands-on activities and group discussions and then work with magnifying lenses and tape measures to document their observations on a student sheet. Students will first have opportunities to examine the plants in open-ended ways, and then begin to formulate questions about what they are touching, smelling, and seeing.
