Plants....a 5th Grade Science Lesson

We have been studying Living Systems in my 5th grade class.  Now, if you know anything about me, you know that I am the world's worst science teacher.  OK...maybe not the worst, but I am really on a learning curve this year.  So this year has been a pretty big struggle with science.  Life science has been going pretty well though.  All of the experiments on the digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems were a big hit.  But now, we have moved on to plants.
Vascular plants to be specific (that sounded very scientific, eh?)  The students have been looking at different plants and leaves, taking notes, observing, discovering, and generally enjoying it.  We also have been making some foldables to go along with everything.  Come on over to see how I am teaching these important standards to my students....and maybe leave a suggestion on something you have done in the past to make this unit of study successful!
