Patterns and the Plant World : STEM Road Map for Elementary School, Grade 1
Part of the The STEM Road Map Curriculum series
What if you could challenge your first graders to relate changes in seasonal weather patterns to changes in the plant world?
Patterns and the Plant World helps young children learn about a range of natural phenomena in a STEM context.
They'll explore how Earth's movement around the Sun affects the planet's regional weather patterns, observe the changes in plant life that come with the changing seasons, and use the steps of the engineering design process to design and create a class garden for the Container Garden Design Challenge.
The challenge emphasizes observation, data collection, measurement, and presenting numerical data in graphic form.
