I think "Parts of a Plant" is a wonderful lesson. I love the interactive piece with the Kids’ Zone graphing site. What a great tool for students to use! The site may be confusing to kids and some of the elements are a bit involved. Teachers may need to walk kids through the first time especially if this is for third graders. However, I found myself a bit confused as to what part the students are actually graphing. Are they graphing how much of what food they eat that is a plant?
The amount and variety of technologies (PowerPoint, graphing site) is excellent. I also like the use of pictures from the supermarket! I feel that the variety of instruction will help keep students engaged.
Is this a follow up lesson? It seems there is a lot of information being covered for one lesson.
