FIELD TRIPS BY GRADE LEVEL

 

Soil Particle Size

3.L.2.4 Explain how the basic properties (texture and capacity to hold water) and components (sand, clay and humus) of soil determine the ability of soil to support the growth and survival of many plants.

Learning in the Garden

3.L.2.1 Remember the function of the following structures as it relates to the survival of plants in their environments: • Roots – absorb nutrients • Stems – provide support • Leaves – synthesize food • Flowers – attract pollinators and produce seeds for reproduction

3.L.2.2 Explain how environmental conditions determine how well plants survive and grow

3.L.2.3 Summarize the distinct stages of the life cycle of seed plants.

Trail Hike

3.L.2.1 Remember the function of the following structures as it relates to the survival of plants in their environments: • Roots – absorb nutrients • Stems – provide support • Leaves – synthesize food • Flowers – attract pollinators and produce seeds for reproduction

3.L.2.2 Explain how environmental conditions determine how well plants survive and grow. Soil is made up   of different types of particles that we classify as sand, silt, and clay. Clay is the smallest particle, sand is the largest.

3.L.2.3 Summarize the distinct stages of the life cycle of seed plants.

Solar Stroll

3.E.1.1 Recognize that the earth is part of a system called the solar system that includes the sun (a star), planets, and many moons and the earth is the third planet from the sun in our solar system.
