Plant Sale Project

Found In: science, money skills, mother’s day, outdoor activities, project based learning


I incorporate many academic areas by studying plants. We grow plants from cuttings, from seeds and from bulbs. We start at the beginning of the year, and by May we have many different kinds; so, my class holds a Mother’s Day plant sale.

Students compare and contrast the growth of the plants and record the plants’ progress in their writing journals. Students sell the plants, so collecting money and making change become part of the project. They calculate how much was spent on supplies and how much profit was made. We purchase books for the school library with the proceeds. We’ve been doing this for three years and the students love this project.
