Summary
Students will be studying the structure of plants, their life cycles, and the adaptations that plants have to certain environments by participating in a variety of hands-on and creative activities. Students will also be growing and maintaining plants in the classroom in order to demonstrate their knowledge of what plants need to survive. Students will apply their knowledge from the activites and internet research to construct a publishable brochure to encourage homeowners to purchase Florida native species. The project will focus on integrating technology to accelerate science achievement (and concurrently reading), close the achievement gap and bridge the digital divide to meet the needs of all students, whether struggling, proficient or advanced.
