Plant Trackers Contest

Although we encourage you to use these materials to engage your students in plant phenology, the official Plant Trackers Contest is now closed. Winners will be contacted via email in early June 2021 and announced a few weeks later.

About Plant Trackers:

We teamed up with Scholastic to engage Grade 3-6 students in our Phenology and Climate project! Use the materials developed for the Plant Trackers contest to teach about plant life cycles and how they are influenced by climate and weather. Use the contest entry forms to empower your students to observe a plant like a scientist.

See the Plant Trackers Contest website for complete details and materials developed for remote or in person learning. All materials are also available in Spanish on the Budburst site.

Do your part for our planet. Join Budburst today.
