Description of how to implement in the class:
As a hook for the study on Plants the teacher will show the BrainPop video on Plants. After viewing, the teacher will have a discussion on
the important facts learned about Plants. As a class, we will make a chart of all of our facts about plants and the life cycle. During group, the
teacher will read The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle and we will continue a discussion about anything new we learned from the book. We will
plant our own seeds and observe them. Next we will make mini books about the life cycles of plants. Lastly, we will record a video of the
students acting out a seed sprouting into a flower to make a beautiful graden.
