The Wonderful World of Plants


Last week we read a nonfiction book called The Wonderful World of Plants. This week we went one step further and did a close read on one chapter of the book. Each group chose a different chapter to become an expert on the subject, this way we could teach the rest of the class! Most groups shared using the iPad app Educreations, but one group used iMovie to edit their video. Check out our digital presentations!

The Parts of a Plant – created by Shyann and Miguel

How Plants Make Food – created by Kailey and Carson

How Plants Reproduce – created by Kyle, Jacob and McKenzie

Plants Live (Almost) Everywhere and Plants and Animals – created by Breeanna and Atiana

Plants and You – video directed by Jacky, edited by Jacky and Gabby, and starring Gabby and Jake

Plants and You from Amber Moore on Vimeo.

A different group had the opportunity to read Where Plants Grow. This is their digital presentation.

  10. Dear Mrs. Moore’s Class,
    These were GREAT presentations! It is clear that you really paid attention to the text and found some very interesting facts. I really liked your summaries of the chapters. You found the main ideas, and presented key details that were important for us to know about plants. What was the most surprising thing you learned about plants? I have a challenge for you: The first person that comes to me and can tell me the world’s fastest growing plant will get a prize.
