Any ideas on the best way to teach plants to 4th graders. What order to you like to teach the information? Any fun experiments to use? What about photosynthesis...How do you like to teach it? Any suggestions will be appreciated!!

I posted this on the science board but thought maybe I would get more responses here!

I tried searching for previous posts, but sooooo many come up!

I begin by teaching about the needs of plants. We then learn about the different plant parts. It is helpful if students can have different plants to look at and practice locating parts like stamen and pistal. I teach photosynthesis through comparing it to a factory. During the learnin, students will label an organizer, watch video clips, and complete a photosynthesis comparision page. My students are exposed to the material in a variety of methods so that various learning styles can be addressed. jc-schools.net is a creat site to help find ideas on how to teach the content so that is fun and appropriate.

I teach plants to my fourth graders. We love the Magic School Bus Video Gets Planted and it seems like there may be one more. There is a magic school bus website that has all the titles and topics.
