What do plants need to grow? Draw predictions and results with Crayola® Dry-Erase Crayons as you experiment with sunlight and water.
Research plants and what plants need to grow. Begin with a round-robin share. Present the category “Different Kinds of Plants” and invite children to go around the circle naming specific trees, flowers, and other plants with which they are familiar. Create a list of questions about plants. Read books, gather information from educational websites, and interview farmers and gardeners to learn more about what plants need to grow.
Ask children to create their own plant growth experiments to answer questions they have about plants. Or design a whole-class experiment using three young bean plants. One will receive both sunlight and water, another will receive just sunlight, and the third will receive just water. Discuss how you will measure the results of your experiments (plant height, number and/or description of leaves, bean production, illustrations of plants, etc.).
Provide Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons and individual dry-erase boards for children to illustrate their predictions of the results of their experiments. Work together to also create a data table using dry-erase crayons on a large dry-erase board. Plan how often students will record data and create enough spaces for each measurement, illustration, or description.
Record results of data, including plant measurements, descriptions, and illustrations of leaves and plants.
Compare predictions with results. Create new predictions as children understand and interpret new data. Use a cloth, tissue, or paper towel to erase and replace data.
