In an effort to improve scores on the science portion of the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) and to renew children's interest in science, we developed a Plant Science unit and introduced this unit to the sixth grade of Flagg St. Elementary School (Worcester, MA). Our aim was to develop effective teaching materials including lesson plans, assignments, activities, exams, and study tools that were inexpensive and easily adoptable.
