CORN & LIFE: A Kernel’s Adventure

Entire lesson below.  Also available is the printable PDF version.

Students explore how important corn is in our daily lives by discovering the many products made of corn, that corn is grown in Kansas, and what corn plants look like. They delve into discovering where the seed of a corn plant is by planting different parts of the plant to test their ideas.  They expand their observation skills, form explanations based on evidence, and develop motor skills in the context of corn.

Each lesson could be taught as a stand-alone lesson, though they are designed to form a complete unit.
