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.
To start our unit on the Earth and Human Activity, our focus will be on plants. Plants are living things that grow and change, make their own food, and respond to their environment. In order to solve an engineering design challenge about plants, it's important we know all about them! So Kindergartners are starting with the very beginning of a plant, learning exactly what a seed is. Students are looking at many types of seeds and identifying all the unique characteristics they may have!
