Growing Bean Plants

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

Growing bean plants is a common science activity at this age. This task adds some rigor to the activity, by collecting actual growth data, providing practice for students in measuring and recording length measurements. This task primarily addresses standard 1.MD.2 Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. The task also addresses 1.OA.1 by asking students to compare the heights of the plants.
