What are a plants' needs? What are animals' needs? What are humans' needs? How do they all interact? Kindergartners will be exploring how plants, animals, and humans live together and how engineering problems focus on the needs of each organism.
Kindergartners have drawn conclusions from all their seed observations. Seeds can be different sizes, shapes, and colors. Each of their differences can have an effect on how the plant grows. They had a chance to look at one specific seed--one that they will eventually design a container for. The seeds they are looking at are lima bean seeds. We're collecting data on them to compare how even seeds of the same type can be different!
