Students influence the plant life cycle as they take care of plants.In this caring for plants instructional activity, students understand the parts of the plant and their functions in keeping it alive. Students participate in experiments with plants and observe and record the results. Students write a story as if they were plants.
Students observe beans germinating in a plastic bag.  For this bean growing lesson, students predict what their beans will look like. Students draw illustrations to record the changes in their bean plants. Students should also note the link to the water cycle.
Laboratory activities encourage evolutionary biology scholars to consider homologous structures as evidence of common ancestry. They learn how to formulate phylogenic trees and that environment influences to genetic variation. Activities are pertinent to high school biology courses and in this resource they are explained in detail for your convenience. 
Learners observe air quality and monoxide data. In this air quality lesson, students draw conclusions and manipulate data from a one year period on changes in air quality.
An engaging, multi-session art and science lesson awaits your class. Within this lesson, you'll find everything you need to implement the plan. They go on a nature walk around their school, and must identify many living and non-living things. Once back in their classroom, they sort specimens collected by the teacher into "living" and "non-living." They also color in a picture of the Kansas state flower (the sunflower), and identify the sunflower's needs to stay alive.
Students prepare microclimates for growing lima bean seeds into plants. They care for the seedlings as they observe and document their growth.
Students examine the life cycle of plants. In this plants lesson, students identify the various stages of plants and their parts. Students compare the life cycle of a plant with that of an animal. Activities suggested can be modified for a wide developmental range of students.
In the first section, young scholars will create a diorama, that includes a local habitat and shows the plants, animals, and non-living components needed to sustain the area. Students will be using their notes and learning logs for reference, as well as doing research to ensure that they have a viable habitat. In the second section, young scholars write a test. Teachers will assess the expectations using information collected from both activities.
Students discover that all living things have a life cycle in which they are born, reproduce and die. In groups, they examine and analyze the changes that happen during the lifespan of a human. To end the lesson, they discuss how the lifespan of other organisms is different from humans.
Fourth graders explore animal life cycles. In this animal life cycles biology lesson, 4th graders identify and describe the life cycles of a frog and a butterfly after viewing several related videos, participating in interactive whiteboard activities, and completing a life cycle illustration.
Students observe and listen to nonfiction books about the life cycle of pumpkins. They practice early reading skills in a shared reading related to pumpkins. They observe the life cycle of a pumpkin including growth and decay.
Learners discover the agricultural contributions of George Washington Carver. In this George Washington Carver lesson, students discuss the peanut plant and all the ways Carver used it. Learners view photographs of the agricultural contributions and examine real peanuts shells.
Students investigate and describe the development of plants. They use a Microsoft Word text box to label the parts of a plant, then save the documents and then retrieve them for publication.
Let's grow! Seeds that is. This engaging, interdisciplinary, and interactive lesson plan has young scientists investigating the life cycle of a plant. Learners explore two different web pages from to gather information about the life cycle of a plant. Then they plant, observe, and write about their own seeds. Youngsters could also put on a play about a plant life cycle to solidify all the information they gathered from their research. 
Fourth graders conduct an inquiry to explain how plant life cycles are different.  In this plant life cycles instructional activity, 4th graders study the bitterroot, its unusual adaptations, and what the Salish people learned about the plant. Students diagram and label the bitterroot plant parts. Students keep a journal of observations of the plant.
Second graders use seeds to practice sorting, counting, and graphing. In this graphing seeds lesson, 2nd graders listen to a read aloud of Mitsumasa Anno's Anno's Magic Seeds and discuss the life cycle of plants in different season. They count, sort, and graph a handful of seeds. They use tally marks and create a graph using a software program. Finally, they record their conclusion in a math journals.
Students identify different plant hormones and explain their function in plant development. In this biology lesson, students investigate how IAA affect root growth. They study the history of auxin discovery.
Young scholars create their own terrariums.  In this ecological model lesson, students create terrariums using soil, seeds, pebbles, and two liter bottles.  Young scholars compare the elements of a  terrarium to a food web.
Dirt babies are an excellent way to show young botanists the plant life cycle. They explore the functions and industry behind grasses before growing some of their own. Use the informational text here and consider implementing some reading comprehension skills. They explore these concepts by planting grass seeds in nylon stockings and tying them off to create round dirt babies that grow their own hair. Scholars decorate the faces, water regularly, and make observations as the hair grows. There is a worksheet here so they can write a narrative about their dirt babies. You'll want to create your own dirt baby a couple of weeks early to model the finished product and excite kids about this project.
Young scholars explore Earth science by completing a could identification activity. In this weather lesson, students discuss the different forms of measurement for the weather of Earth. Young scholars discuss global warming and examine a list of weather measurement tools which use to complete cloud worksheets.
