Need a plant unit

Hi Guys
Super busy. Its Batman's birthday party tomorrow so I have been colouring fondant, cutting out batmans and generally crossing my fingers trying to make the cake look good for my little man. What do you think?




But anyway...


Next term our unit is What's Alive? and we will look at plants and animals. So what I am after is a recommendation for a good unit.Have you got one that you like? Do you want to promote your own?


Give me your suggestions please. I'm all ears :)

  1. I have 2 in my wish list on TpT..."Growin Things" by Christie from First Grade Fever & "Plenty of Plants" from Made for 1st Grade. The cake looks SUPER (ha! get it?) Batman will be pleased:)

  2. Lacey, at Wild About Teaching has a great unit on TPT called "From Plant to Seed"...it has experiments and activities to help understand plant growth! I would DEFINATELY recommend it!

  5. These are the ones that I purchased from TpT. Most of them I could adapt for my 3-5's. Some have games to play and glyphs to make or cards/posters to use.There were lots more available but these ones just seemed the best to me. My little guys liked most of the activities.
    Just curious (seeing that you are in Aus as well) what books do you recommend for this theme? I have attempted to get ones for the TpT packs but they are American publishers and difficult to obtain. Any suggestions?
