Botany for third graders

This past week was the beginning of botany for Danyl. We are watching the changes of the trees and plants that spring brings. This week we will be planting some vegetables in pots so we can watch them grow. I think it’ll be good for him to be able to see the things in real life that we studied last week on the web.

The thing I like about growing plants is the diversity in teaching you can do. Science is a given but you can also teach math (measurments) reading (as you do research on the different plants) and spellling/ definitions (photosynthesis anyone?)
