PlantsTogether

This program is separated into two sections based on grade level. Plant It! A Bean! (K-2) and Plant It! An Ecosystem (Grades 3-5). This program was designed with the purpose of describing the how-to’s of plants including their life cycles, food chains and ecosystems while also giving students a close up view of the carnivorous plants that grow right here in our county, the Venus Fly Trap and Sundew Plant! The program hopes to invoke a greater understanding of how to protect plant and animal habitats and why they are essential to us. If you would like to schedule this outreach for your students please complete an outreach request form or contact Emily Baker via email, Emily_Baker@onslowcountync.gov or by phone, 910-324-5008. 

Curriculum


All curriculum based programs incorporate goals and objectives of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study as well as DoDEA Curriculum Standards. We welcome home school families and ask that you share your educational goals with us!
