In the Classroom

In a perfect world, students would use this lesson as a starting point for planting and growing their imaginary garden. Although it might not be possible to plant a garden in every case, consider using portions of the lesson to let students grow a plant of their choice in the classroom. Enhance learning by using Edublog, reviewed here, or Adobe Spark in K-12, reviewed here, to document the growing process including failures and successes. Include images, videos, and student writing to document their learning.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
