“Space! The final frontier! A hostile environment where plants cannot grow. Our mission: to explore strange new worlds and seek out plant life and new… vegetation!” -Cactus Kirk
“It is life, but not as we know it.” -Mr. Stalk.
THIS is the adventure of the Space Scout Succulents. This is an in house field trip assembly for your first and second grades. Students will laugh and learn watching this animated cartoon & science show. Filled with humor, comix and sound effects it teaches about the life cycle of plants as we follow the cacti coming to earth to see if they could survive here, where the grass is greener.
Didja know? Some plants can grow in water only, not just soil & sand, and some grow just using air. We explain that these conditions may be perfect for one type of plant but not another….submerging ivy/pond like plants in water is great for these plants but wouldn’t work with many other types.
We talk about how seeds travel (wind/animals/humans). “It appears to be some sort of Canadian Plant Ambassador!”
We learn plant vocabulary. It’s a germination! Woo hoo!
We talk about how humans can use “plants” to make food they need. Plants and humans help each other survive! We both need sunlight, food, water and air.
Observe plant environments.
Associate plants with literature.
Dramatize a plant story.
Identify ways of taking care of plants.
Join us on the fun and exciting learning adventure.
“It’s not manure, OK? It’s moo poo.”
