Dress Up Like a Corn Plant

Dress Up Like a Corn Plant

This kit gives instructions and materials to host the Dress Up Like a Corn Plant activity. The lesson starts by reading the My Family's Corn Farm book, and transitions into a skit-like lesson where one student is given props and clothing items to mimic different stages in the corn plant's life cycle. Students learn about farmers giving nutrients to crops, that crops must withstand pressures like hail or insects, and how the plant grows and develops.
