Mutualism and Co-evolution A study of Flowering Plants and their Pollinators: Biology, Plants
These lessons use a variety of methods and approaches to teach flowering plant biology which includes seed germination; plant growth and food production through photosynthesis; plant transpiration and respiration; sexual reproduction focusing on flower st
Introduction To the Elements of the Water Cycle
The basic elements of the water cycle and how water is recycled through our environment is focused on in this instructional activity. Your students construct classroom terrariums and learn to make and record observations relating to the water cycle.
Leaves, the Sun, and the Water Cycle
As a way to combine life and physical science, or simply as an investigation of plant transpiration, this lesson is sure to inspire! Middle schoolers capture the moisture given off by plants that are placed in different conditions. They relate the output to the surface area of the leaves.
7th - 8th Science
Support and Transport in Plants
All types of transport systems in a dicotyledon plant are detailed here, with clear labelled diagrams and notes for the specific structures and functions. The way that these systems have adapted, and how support is assisted by the structures, is also described.
9th - 11th Science
Energy for Tree Growth
Learners investigate a tree's need for water and sunlight to survive by conducting two experiments in small groups. They isolate the end of a leaf bearing twig in a sealed jar to discover the process of transpiration then look at growth differences in seedlings kept in the dark versus in the sunlight.
3rd - 5th Science
Virtual Lab: Plant Transpiration
Virtual labs are a nice change once in a while. Using this resource, beginning botanists visit a website where they set up an experiment comparing the transpiration rate of geranium seeds in humid, normal, warm, and windy environments. As they work online, they complete the learning exercise.
7th - 12th Science
Plant Growth - Light and Shade
Third graders conduct an experiment comparing plants. In this plant lesson, 3rd graders plant seeds and grow two varieties of plant comparing the light needed for it to grow. Students make predictions and record their observations. Students complete prediction, observation and conclusion worksheets.
Go To The Head of the Cloud
Students pretend they are water droplets traveling through the water cycle. Using their text, they discover the steps in the cycle and the different paths water can take. They write a report about their journey through the water cycle and present it to the class.
4th - 8th English Language Arts
Students investigate the emission of greenhouse gases by industrialized nations. They present their findings in a simulated international global warming conference. They then whether or not the United States should take part in the international climate accord and write an essay supporting their views.
6th - 12th Science
Urban Ecosystems 2: Why are There Cities? A Historical Perspective
Second in a series of five lessons, this lesson encourages preteens to consider cities as urban ecosystems. First, they keep a food diary for a few days. They visit the Natrional Agricultural Statistics Service website for current data on food production.
4th - 6th Science
Leaf it to Me
Students observe the effect of transpiration as water is moved from the ground to the atmosphere. They discuss the two methods that water moves from the ground to the atmopshere as part of the hydrologic cycle. Students are taught that transpiration is the evaporation of water from plant leaves.
9th - 12th Science
Students continue their examination of the existence of life on Earth. In groups, they determine the role of the water cycle and other biogeochemical cycles play in keeping balance on Earth. They participate in experiments to discover how moisture gets in and out of the air.
