Grade K Module 1
My Big Nature Adventure
Plants and Animal Needs
Students will learn:
Different plants and animals live in different places.
In this module, students travel the world looking at different environments, including deserts, grasslands, cities, and even their very own schoolyard. They observe some of the plants and animals that live in these places, and discover that each environment provides living things with what they need to survive.
Through hands-on exploration, videos, books and experiments, students also learn that all living things share the same basic needs—whether you’re a plant, a human, or a dung beetle!
