Does anyone have ideas for fourth grade plants, integrating math into science?

I don't know what you are doing with plants, but graphing always fits well with science.

graphing, and data analysis computations (mean, median, mode, and range), measurement of the height and leaves (convert from inches to cms/other way around)....

You could probably do fractions and percent...you measure the plants in the beginning (and the number of leaves, etc) and then as the plants grow/die, you can figure out the % of growth, showing fractional parts and then %ages...
