Botany Curriculum Supplement: Great Science Adventures

Enrich your child’s botany study with Great Science Adventures. Organized around 24 lessons, each with a mini-book project, lab activity, and graphic organizer project, students will explore types of plants and how they reproduce; what roots, stems, leaves, and flowers are and what they do; what tree rings tell us; botanical terms for plants; and more. Lessons are written to the teacher and feature primary concepts to teach, vocabulary words, a note on which mini-book to make & read, lab activities, graphic organizer instructions, and "Experience, Investigations, and Research" enrichment/extension projects. Clear directions with step-by-step, leveled instructions, pictures, and helpful information make presenting lessons easy once the pre-lesson preparation is completed. A final cumulative project completes the course.

This flexible book is designed to be used as a multilevel resource or as a curriculum guide for a single student. Within the lessons for the teacher, pencil icons denote beginning (K-1st Grade), Primary (Grades 2 & 3) and Intermediate (Grades 4-8) levels. Lessons take 1-3 days to complete. Pages are not perforated. 143 pages plus reproducible section; softcover and non-consumable if pages are reproduced. Grades K-8.
