This lesson plan ventures into the world of a garden, transforming the process of plant growth into a dialogue-driven narrative using SoCreate. With a plant seed as the hero of our story, this biological exploration becomes an unforgettable learning experience, enriching students' understanding of this natural process.
By the end of this lesson, students should be able to explain the stages of plant growth and demonstrate their understanding by creating a narrative script using SoCreate.
Computers with access to SoCreate platform.
Begin the lesson by introducing the concept of plant growth - germination, sprouting, developing leaves, flowering, and producing seeds.
Explain how we're going to understand this concept better by creating a dialogue-driven story where our main character is a plant seed named "Sammy" experiencing the different stages of plant growth.
Provide a brief walkthrough of SoCreate to the students. Show them how to create a new project and how to add dialogue, actions, and scenes.
Now, let the students create their own scripts on SoCreate. The scripts should revolve around the adventures of "Sammy" as he grows into a beautiful plant. Here's an example:
After students have written their scripts, invite them to share their scripts with the class. Facilitate a discussion about the different stages of plant growth that Sammy went through.
