Growing Vegetables

What vegetables would you like to grow? Grow different kinds of vegetables on a farm with Turtle Diary’s online game, Growing Vegetables! This resource also has a wonderful, brief, interactive video that reviews all the necessary information for what plants need to grow!


Habitat Maker

Students chose from different biomes to create their own ecosystem! The combinations are endless! Students can visualize the different animals and plants found in the arctic tundra, mountains, desert, savannah, and rain forest.

Wild Kratts

Wild Kratts joins the adventures of Chris and Martin Kratt as they encounter incredible wild animals, combining science education with fun and adventure as the duo travels to animal habitats around the globe. Each adventure explores an age-appropriate science concept central to an animal’s life and showcases a rarely seen wildlife moment, all wrapped up in engaging stories of adventure, mystery, rescue, and the Kratt brothers’ brand of laugh-out-loud-comedy that kids love.

The Great Habitat Match-Up

  • Plants depend on water and light to grow. (2-LS2-1)
  • There are many different kinds of living things in any area, and they exist in different places on land and in water. (2-LS4-1)
  • Plants depend on animals for pollination or to move their seeds around. (2-LS2-2)
  • Designs can be conveyed through sketches, drawings, or physical models. These representations are useful in communicating ideas for a problem’s solutions to other people. (secondary to 2-LS2-2)
