Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Plant Needs - Section 3: Explore

 

The students should take care of the plants and give the appropriate ones water when needed. This lesson will be referred to throughout the unit in order to solidify that plants need air, light, and water to survive.

I find it beneficial to the kids learning to have a hands on experiment that they can conduct themselves and develop their own ideas through observation over time.  I find it allows for deeper connections and conversation during science circle.
