The Plants We Eat Project will be the students’ science project for the 3rd quarter. Students are to research an assigned plant food. They will create an 8 x 10 poster for their plant food. It must include an illustration (no printed or cut out pictures – it must be hand drawn). The poster will also include a one paragraph summary of your plant food that includes at least 3 facts. One of the facts should be what part of the plant you eat. For example if your plant food is lettuce, you eat the leaves of the plant. You must use one internet website and one book to research your plant food. Sources must be listed on your poster. Students will present their project to the class prior to Spring Break and the posters will be turned into a class book of Plants We Eat! (While parent help is recommended for the research, please be sure your child is doing all written aspects of the project independently.)
