The Carrot Seed Lesson

The Carrot Seed Lesson

Objective:  students will compare actions in a drama to people in real life situations.

Continuing and reinforcing the previous Prop Box Lesson, growing plants provide the real life inspiration for this lesson.   This lesson is based on the book “The Carrot Seed” by Ruth Krauss: find a copy at the bookstore or at the library to complete the materials.  Your students will enjoy discussions about what is needed for plant growth and acting out gardening (part of the kindergarten objectives).   Discussion will also include thoughts about personal abilities and positive thinking.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Kindergarten Curriculum.
