What You’ll Receive
This kit uses a word game, a classroom activity, drawing, and a character named “the gardening cowboy” to bring students into the world of plants and demonstrate how their tiny parts work together to sustain them.
- Bellringer – Find a word! The bellringer challenges students to find words related to plants and gardening. Among the jumbled letters are several key words that will be defined in today’s lesson.
- Video – He’s a gardener and he’s a cowboy. Now, he’s not having an identity crisis. He’s the gardening cowboy and he introduces students to parts of a flower in a comical, tongue-in-cheek presentation.
- PowerPoint – The PowerPoint presentation teaches students to identify the parts of a plant and their functions through photos. Then, students are asked to play a game which requires drawing and labeling the parts of a plant.
- Worksheet – The worksheet requires students to show what they have learned by labeling photographs and explaining why certain parts of the plant are necessary.
