The guiding questions for this activity are,“What are the needs of a plant and what are the parts of the plant?” Growing plants have different parts with roots underground and the stem is the upper part that holds leaves and flowers. In this activity, students will plant some seeds and take them home to see how they grow. They will also learn about nutrients—something that is needed for healthy growth. Before beginning this activity, we recommend you read Chapters 9 and 10 which are in this book selection. Chapter 9 is an overview of the section and introduces the format used to present ideas for Family Science Night activities. Chapter 10 explains that these activities are what they call novice level. A materials list, references, safety notes, standards, and teacher background information are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, Introduction, and Index.
