Plant Growth & Development (STC)
Students observe each stage in the life cycle of a simple plant. Students plant seeds and watch the seedlings emerge. They thin and transplant seedlings. As they watch plants grow, students learn that plants need nutrients from the soil, as well as water and light, to thrive. To explore the interdependence of living things, students pollinate the flowers with dried honeybees. Finally, they harvest mature seeds and determine seed yields.
