Research plant life cycles using a variety of materials. Researchers will visit four stations set up with books, digitized version of books, and software offering text-to-speech support. They will then answer two plant life cycle questions posted on the board and write their responses on Post-it notes. Finally, they mark evidence in the text to support their answers, and then gather as a group to share.
Fourth graders understand vocabulary related to plant life cycle such as annual, biennial and perennial. In this plant life cycle activity, 4th graders collect seeds from flowers and foods to be used for the common good in a sharing program. Students will discuss the various seed types and the plants derived from those seeds.
Students study and observe plant life cycles. In this life cycle lesson, students watch a PowerPoint with the different stages of life for a plant. Students complete learning stations to study the stages in detail. Students watch video about the plant life stages and complete a quiz. Students finish with a test that uses images of the life cycle stages.
A cross-curricular expository writing lesson has third and fourth graders listen to and discuss the book The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss. They write a journal entry from the perspective of a carrot seed. Pupils use the writing process to create a book explaining the life cycle of a plant of their choice. Emphasis on transition words and sequencing are part of the lesson. This is a great way to introduce primary and secondary sources, too! For fourth graders, choose a more sophisticated plant life cycle book.
