We enjoyed our unit on the life cycle of a Wisconsin Fast plant and I was so impressed with the materials we purchased from Carolina Biological. It is one of my favorite resources for science supplies and lab activities. Their catalog is huge!
In just a little under 45 days the children were able to see the plant grow from a seed, pollinated plants using dried bees, and harvested seeds from the seed pods produced after pollination.

This hands-on approach coupled with notebooking made this unit not only fun but a learning success!
