  • Exploring Small Spaces (video)

Key Science Concepts

  • Plants have different parts: roots, stems, leaves, and fruit.  
  • Some parts of the plant are below the ground and some are above.
  • Plants grow in many places. Usually they grow in soil.


Before you watch: Tell the group they’ll be watching a video about children exploring a very small space outside.  

After you watch: Ask children, What are some of the different things the children saw? Was there anything they saw that surprised you? Why do you think the children liked looking at a small space?

Optional: Watch the video a second time.
