Seed Plants: Angiosperms
Middle schoolers describe flowering plants and see why angiosperms are the most successful plants. In this angiosperms lesson students identify angiosperms and explain how they reproduce.
Students study angiosperms and their classifications. In this investigative lesson students compare the sexual reproduction of angiosperms and seed formations.
Introduction to Plant Classification
Here is a terrific, one-hour lesson on plant taxonomy. In it, learners discover the three bases that plants can be classified under. They view a slide show on plants and practice correctly classifying each plant shown. Then, they take a walk around the school and identify angiosperms and gymnosperms. A good worksheet is embedded in the plan which will help them with their identifications.
Study Jams! Angiosperms: Seeds in Fruit
Flowers are lovely, but they are also very practical if you are a plant! In this video, kids learn that without a flower, there would be no seeds. They also find out about the two types of seeds: monocots and dicots. Pollination and germination are also discussed by the two teenagers who star in this fragrant feature. You will find terrific supportive resources on the website in addition to the video. Use this as the highlight piece for your introduction to angiosperms in your life science class!
Fun with Phylogenetic Trees
Tenth graders differentiate angiosperms and gymnosperms. In this biology lesson, 10th graders construct a musical phylogenetic tree from information they gathered on resource websites. They present their project in class.
Seeds & Germination
Students study the types and parts of seeds and how they have evolved. In this germination lesson students complete experiments that show the effects of variables role in seed germination.
How Do Flowering Plants Reproduce
Students investigate how flowering plants reproduce. They identify and describe the functions of the major sexual organs of a flower and fruit by examining and dissecting flowers and fruit.
Collecting and Classifying Pollen
Learners collect and analyze pollen from different species of plants. In small groups, they classify pollen according to shape, size and physical characteristics. They draw the basic anatomy of flowering plants and create a dichotomous key for identifying the pollen grains.
Introduction To Plants
In this science worksheet, learners complete a series of puzzles related to the subject of plants. They complete a reading and apply the information to measure reading comprehension.
Seed Plant Reinforcement
In this plant activity, students contrast gymnosperms and angiosperms by completing a table and using information from their textbook. They also identify 5 plants as either monocot or dicot and complete 3 short answer questions about seed plants.
Introduction to Plants
A vast overview of avascular and vascular plants, this PowerPoint displays all of the notes your botanists need to take. It lists primitive plant groups and their characteristics. It separates gymnosperms and angiosperms, also detailing their characteristics. Prior knowledge of sexual vs. asexual reproduction in living organisms, classification, and binomial nomenclature is suggested, but can be taught as you proceed through these slides.
In this nonfiction comprehension worksheet, students read the selection on plant diversity and answer 10 questions that include true/false, short answer, multiple choice, and fill in the blank.
Plant Kingdom Review Guide
For this plant kingdom worksheet, students answer 32 questions about the structures of plants including the xylem, phloem and types of plants. Students compare angiosperms to gymnosperms.
Botany Scavenger Hunt Where's the Ginkgo?
Students use a science journal to log plants that are native to Alabama. In this plant lesson plan, students identify characteristics, describe environments, and classify the plants that they find.
Plant Parts and Functions
Fifth graders examine two or three unfamiliar flowers or fruits, such as eggplant and mango and realize that each flower or fruit comes from a flowering seed plant. They then identify the plants.
The Origin of Life
In this origin of life worksheet, students write answers to five questions. They describe characteristics of the first life forms and how scientists believe oxygen accumulated in the Earth's atmosphere.
The Six Kingdoms
In this classification worksheet, learners complete a chart listing the characteristics of each of six kingdoms. They write definitions for three terms.
Mapping Gymnosperms and Angiosperms
In this plant learning exercise, middle schoolers create a map of a familiar area such as their yard, a nearby park, or the school grounds showing the major plants. On their map they identify the plants in three ways following the example provided. Once map is complete, students answer 3 conclusion questions.
Seventh graders examine different categories of plant life and their roles as producers of food and oxygen for other organisms. They study the evolution of plants from simple organisms to very complex ones. They look at the different classes of plants, vascular and non-vascular plants, ferns, and seed groups.
What is an Angiosperm?
In this plant activity, students study a diagram of a magnified root cross-section. Students use this diagram to complete 2 true or false questions.
