This workbook contains two lessons, “The Five Needs of Plants” and “Biodegradability” and is meant to be used with the GreenSpace Sunflower Grow Kit. Comes FREE with the purchase of 10 kits.
Aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards.
The purpose of Learn and Grow Sustainably is to teach students of all ages to appreciate the interaction between humans, plants, and the environment. Our Sunflower Grow Kit is fully compostable and allows students to witness the growth of an edible food product within 10 days. This lesson plan series will help students to learn about plant growth, nutrition, and physiology as well as a little bit of materials science through experiments on our kit’s compostable plastic container. These topics are important for fostering a sense of environmental stewardship for a more sustainable future.
The activities in this two part lesson series are optimized for grades 3-5 and are aligned with the science standards for that grade band. However, this lesson can be adapted to suit K-2, Middle School, High School, and Adult Education by aligning the lessons to similar standards at different grade levels.
