Lima Bean planting: This cute frame made to look like a see through pot added some charm to growing a lima bean. Wet a paper towel and put it in a sealed ziplock bag with a few lima beans. Place in a sunny window; but change the paper towel and water (not too much) after a few days to keep it from getting moldy.

I Love this idea it will tie beautifully to the book: Tops & Bottoms (Caldecott Honor Book) [Janet Stevens]-- good for finding out which part of the plant we eat (root, leaves, seeds)

KMG-This is a great charting activity with plants and can be used toward the end of the lesson to ensure that the students understand the lesson. The parts of the plant and what the plants give are more complex complex concepts for kindergarten, but it is still okay to introduce and teach it. I just will not require reciprocation of the information in order to achieve mastery.

I really like this teacher's idea of having plant week to focus on plants as living things. This website has lesson plan ideas, plant experiments, poems, and books that can be used.
