The child begins to explore basic botanical facts, through a series of story-telling activities, observations, experiments, and impressionistic charts.

The experiments go into detail about the needs of plants, their basic functions, and their purposes on our planet.

Biology focuses on the plants and animals which form part of the environment in which the child lives and continues to develop through experiences they have in it, when they interact with plants and animals.

Montessori said, “the world is acquired psychologically by means of the imagination, reality is studied in detail and then the whole is imagined, the detail is able to grow in the imagination and the whole is attained”.

The theme of examining the needs of plants, originating from the work in history, is a key idea in Botany.

Make a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes and the types of plants and animals that live there may change. Examples of environmental changes could include changes in land characteristics, water distribution, temperature, food, and other organisms. Assessment is limited to a single environmental change. Assessment does not include the greenhouse effect or climate change.


Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing. Examples of cause and effect relationships could be plants that have larger thorns than other plants may be less likely to be eaten by predators; and, animals that have better camouflage coloration than other animals may be more likely to survive and therefore more likely to leave offspring.


Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats. Emphasis is on the diversity of living things in each of a variety of different habitats. Assessment does not include specific animal and plant names in specific habitats.


Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all. Examples of evidence could include needs and characteristics of the organisms and habitats involved. The organisms and their habitat make up a system in which the parts depend on each other.


Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment. Emphasis is on the idea that matter that is not food (air, water, decomposed materials in soil) is changed by plants into matter that is food. Examples of systems could include organisms, ecosystems, and the Earth. Assessment does not include molecular explanations.
