We are learning about plants.
I like this unit because we kick it off with the actual planting of plants.
I used to dread the actual planting of plants because I felt rushed, out of control, and just a tad bit panicky.
These days . . . well . . . it’s no big thing. I don’t know if that’s because I’m older, wiser, and more experienced, or if it’s because I’ve realized that feeling rushed, out of control, and a tad bit panicky just happens to be my teaching style.
Anywho, I’m sure you already know how to plant, but I thought I’d share my tips and tricks with you, especially if you have 32 first graders and want to know how to do it in under thirty minutes.
That’s right. In under thirty minutes.
First, you have to get your hands on the The Magic School Bus Goes to Seed video. And if you don’t have access to the video, you can get it on You Tube, which is what I did. And if you can’t access You Tube, then I’m out of ideas for you and you might as well stop reading this because The Magic School Bus Goes to Seed video is step one in my whole under thirty minutes scenario.
Second, before playing the video, you have a chat with your kiddos.
