What is Soil? (3-5)

Healthy soil is essential for the survival of plants. Soil is composed of minerals, water, air and organic matter. High quality, balanced soil allows the plant to intake the ideal quantity of water.
Not available

Plant Life Cycle (3-5)

We'll learn more about the 6 stages of a plant life cycle and understand how seeds are dispersed. And we'll learn different ways for plants to reproduce other than through seeds.
Not available

Plant Parts (3-5)

All plants have the same main parts but there is much diversity when it comes to shape, size and color; this is because the plants and plant parts are specifically adapted to the environment in which they live.
Not available

Photosynthesis (3-5)

Through photosynthesis, plants and animals, including humans, play mutually beneficial roles in one another's lives.
Not available

Compost (3-5)

Compost is our natural recycling system. Decomposers are essential for breaking down large organic matter in our soil. The recipe for compost includes “greens” and “browns”.
Not available

Soil Food Web (3-5)

In this lesson weʻll learn: To identify the various roles of organisms within the food web and gain an understanding of how energy chains function in our soil.
Not available

Pollination (3-5)

The process of pollination is critical to the continuation of the plant lifecycle; learn how it happens and the special adaptations plants and animals have made to survive.
Not available

Butterfly Life Cycle

Watch the process of metamorphosis take place as a fritillary butterfly goes through its life cycle. This video was originally made for grades K-2, but watching the process of metamorphosis is amazing at any age!
Not available

Erosion (3-5)

Topsoil is a necessity to life on the plant. Plants play a crucial role in creating and protecting topsoil by minimizing erosion and increasing water absorption of our soil.
