Young Scientists at Work

Last Friday, scholars walked to nearby Nash Farm to observe and investigate pumpkin plants. As part of the kindergarten science curriculum, scholars learn to:
  • identify the basic needs of plants (food, water, nutrients, sunlight and space)
  • identify the parts of a plant (roots, stem, leaves)
  • identify ways young plants resemble parent plants 
  • observe changes that are part of the life cycle of the plant (seed, seedling, plant, flower, fruit)

Next week scholars will apply this learning as they plan and write an expository text reflective of their learning.
