Q3W7

Science Learning Targets:  
We will begin our unit on plant responses.
 
SC.3.L.14.2 : Students will investigate and describe how plants respond to stimuli (heat, light, gravity), such as the way plant stems grow toward light and their roots grow downward in response to gravity.
 
Science Learning Activities: Students will learn about how plants respond to light, gravity, and heat. Students will conduct research through reading passages about plant responses. They will hypothesize about what will happen to plants when they are given no light, turned over, or results of different temperatures on a plant. They will also make observations of these plants and the effects the stimuli will have.
