Bitterroot Adaptations and Salish Traditions
Fourth graders conduct an inquiry to explain how plant life cycles are different. In this plant life cycles lesson, 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.
Learners identify different plant hormones and explain their function in plant development. For this biology lesson, students investigate how IAA affect root growth. They study the history of auxin discovery.
Building a Terrarium System
Students create their own terrariums. In this ecological model lesson, students create terrariums using soil, seeds, pebbles, and two liter bottles. Students 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.
Weather, Climate and Atmospheric Process
Learners 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. Learners discuss global warming and examine a list of weather measurement tools which use to complete cloud worksheets.
From Seed To Plant
Second graders have an opportunity to explore seed parts, how a plant grows, and to compare plants. As their plants begin to grow, 2nd graders record observations in a plant book, which is imbedded in this lesson plan.
Would You Like A Desert With That?
Students explore the four different deserts in the United States and their characteristics. They discuss the four different types of deserts in United States and their characteristics, and locate them on a map.
Celebrating Earth Day
Students explore environmental safety by planting seeds outside their classroom. In this Earth Day lesson, students identify the different ways to recycle and conserve resources on Earth while facilitating recycling bins around campus. Students create art projects such as picture frames and plant a seed to observe over several weeks.
Sponge Painting Flowers
Explore the shapes and colors of spring with a flower themed painting project. Included here are a list of materials and the instructions needed to execute an art lesson plan on sponge painting flowers. Tip: Use in conjunction with a flower parts or plant life cycle lesson plan.
Numbers in Art
Students choose a number from one to twelve and tell a number story about it. They listen to the teacher read "Numbers in Art" by Lucy Micklethwait. Students choose three numbers from one to twelve and view works of art while looking for a piece that corresponds with each number they chose.
The Magic School Bus Goes to Seed
Students learn along with Ms. Frizzle's class. In this Magic School Bus lesson plan, students get a bugs-eye view of the flower world and find out how seeds are created, how they travel, and how they grow into plants.
Jeopardy: 1st Grade Science
Here is a great game to play at the end of the year as a cumulative review or prior to state testing. This 1st grade Jeopardy Game contains questions related to typical 1st grade science concepts: clouds, the 5 senses, plants, life cycle, and the human body. Note: While most of these concepts are typical of 1st grade this could also be a great review for 2nd graders too.
Students identify the different parts and function of a flower's reproductive system. In this biology lesson, students explain how pollination works. They watch a video and practice labeling parts of both flower and leaf.
Plant Reproduction Chapter #4
The only way to employ a plant reproduction presentation void of pictures is to support it with actual sample flowers. Botany beginners learn about plant reproduction through an underdeveloped outline of flower structures, reproductive methods, and definitions of pollination and fertilization. Note that there is a spelling error in the title of one slide. The correct spelling is included on the same slide and therefore easily fixed.
Photosynthesis and Plant Reproduction
Students explain the process of photosynthesis. In this biology lesson, students label the different reproductive parts of the flowers. They watch a short video then identify the leaf parts on the board.
Impact of Climate Change on Bees in Eastern Forests: Pollination in Action
Who needs bees? We do! Kids get a chance to understand the pollination process, and the important role bees play in our environment. They play a really great game that shows them how bees normally act versus how bees act when temperatures are warmer than they should be, with the added strain of pesticides thrown in. After the game, they discuss what they learned and fill out an ABC brainstorming worksheet on pollination and create a food web based on the game experience.
Lesson 3: Life Cycle of Brassica Plants
Students investigate the life cycle of brassica plants. In this science lesson, students observe each stage in the life cycle of their plant. Students record their observations and graph the data. Students
Students explore botany by participating in a planting exercise in class. For this plant growth lesson, students identify the optimum methods to achieve plant growth and identify the different life cycles of a plant. Students plant their own seeds in class and observe them over several weeks while recording observations in a journal.
Life Cycles in Action - Flip Book
Students create a flip book to depict animal and plant life cycles. In this life cycle lesson, students discuss life cycles. Students receive a plant or animal and pictures of its life cycle. Students color the pictures and order them. Students then create a flip book for their life cycle.
