Welcome to the Great Plant Escape, an elementary program for
4th and 5th grade students.
Each of the lessons in this program is interdisciplinary, designed
to introduce students to plant science and increase their understanding
of how foods grow. Activities enhance student's math, science,
language arts, social studies, music and art. You have many options
in this program. Choose any or all of the suggested activities
for your class. Many activities are for students to work independently
and some are for group work.
We in University of Illinois Extension hope you enjoy teaching
The Great Plant Escape to your students and that solving the
mysteries of plant life is one they will enjoy!
If you fill out our online

featuring the Great Plant Escape and The
Adventures of Herman the Worm.
