Let it grow! Unit Plan

Let it grow! Unit Plan

For this unit, the scientific investigations are an opportunity to develop Science inquiry skills that will be assessed in a future unit. As students design a solution to an identified problem they will enhance the processes and production skills associated with Design and Technologies.

Students will conduct an inquiry into the need for fresh food throughout the school day to maintain physical and mental energy levels. They will investigate the optimal conditions for growing plants within the school grounds. This will inform the design of a sustainable garden space that can provide the school community with fresh, healthy snacks.
