This is a 4 or 5-day unit of study on plants, how they grow, and what they need to survive. The summative assessment at the end of the unit can either be given on the 4th day or could be saved for the 5th day, giving extra time for review and re-teaching as needed. There is also a plant growing experiment that is part of this unit. This will go on for a week or two after this week of study until plants have grown sufficiently.
