Zoom in on plants

The Arboretum returned to share with the second grade even more about Botany. This lesson was called "Zoom In On Plants." The students enjoyed acquiring more detailed information about the purpose of roots, stems, flowers, and leaves. They had the opportunity to view parts of a plant under the microscope, sharing observations and asking questions. As in true science form, several questions were unanswered, so we are creating experiments to make some learning connections through our own discoveries. It is so fun to have our very own Grow Lab in the classroom. The students like to visit it each morning and make note of any changes in our individual plants and team experiments.
