Leaves of Three

Now here is a really helpful lesson that incorporates plant parts and the all-so-important identification of poison ivy. First graders examine all the parts common to plants; stems, roots, leaves, and flowers. They then turn their attention to one plant with a poisonous touch. They read a very cute story about a pig who outsmarted a wolf using poison ivy, look at several pictures of the ivy in various environments, and then discuss why poison ivy makes you itch. The lesson culminates with a summative assessment where the class draws, writes, and labels mini-posters warning others about the poisonous plant.
