Reflection: Classroom Setup What makes a seed? - Section 4: Exploration: Tending the Garden, Day 2

 

When setting up my classroom in August, I knew that I wanted science options *every* day in first grade.  To make that happen, I designed and stocked a science center.  There are various bins that contain specimens and related books.  Students may use the Science Bins as part of our Daily 5-style reading rotations, and also after science lessons or as an extra morning activity.  

The Plants Bin has books about different trees and flowers, as well as life-like plastic flowers, acorns, seed pods, pinecones, and sections of a tree trunk with rings.  

Here is a picture of the science center in use!  I also have many former students stop by in the morning just to check out what's new!
