A Walk in the "Tall, Tall Grass"
Kaatz, Kathryn
Science and Children, v45 n6 p28-31 Feb 2008
This inquiry-based lesson was inspired by Denise Fleming's book entitled, "In the Tall, Tall Grass" (1991). The author used the book and a real study of prairie grasses to teach kindergartners how to make careful observations and record what they see. In addition, they learn how to "draw as scientists." Here the author describes her class's yearly journey into the "tall, tall grass." (Contains 3 resources.)
