Students use the scientific method to study Animalia and Plantae Kingdoms. In this science inquiry lesson, students watch a PowerPoint about science process skills. Students complete the National Geographic bottled Eggs-periment or the layered liquids experiment.
In this biology word search instructional activity, students search for 10 words and the names of two pictures ( not shown) to complete the puzzle. They check off the words in the word bank at the bottom of the page.
Check this out! Part two of a set of slide shows about biological classification; this one zooms in on kindgom plantae and kingdom animalia. Attractive and informational slides cover details that make this most appropriate for advanced biology learners. Not only do they address general characteristics of each kingdom, they touch on reproduction, seed structure, symmetry, evolutionary trends, body cavity formation and embryo development. This may end up being your most preferred presentation!
Students explore the 5 kingdoms of living things. For this 5 kingdoms of living things lesson, students research the Animalia, Plantae, Monera, Protista, and Fungi Kingdoms. Students use their research findings to create PowerPoint presentations to share in class.
For this biology worksheet, students identify and locate various vocabulary terms related to the classification of living things. There are 32 biology terms located in the word search.
For this biology worksheet, learners identify and locate various vocabulary terms related to the kingdoms of all living things found on earth. There are 24 biology terms located in the word search.
Everyone loves learning about space; there's something incredible about how all of this came to be, isn't there? Engage your Spanish language learners with this interesting topic. First, have each pupil cut out their vocabulary flashcards (included here). After reviewing the information and familiarizing themselves with the planet vocabulary in Spanish, they can complete the reading activities. Through the reading activities, they will take a closer look at the sun, the planets closest to the sun, Earth, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. 
In this language skills worksheet, students read an article about Plant Appreciation Day. Students respond to 6 matching questions, 29 fill in the blank questions, 30 multiple choice questions, 12 word scramble questions, 30 short answer questions, 1 graphic organizer question, and 1 essay question regarding the content of the article. Students may check their answers through the weblink at the top of the page.
Students research the Arctic Hare and chart relevant information under month headings. They compare the information about the Arctic hare to other Arctic mammals.
Fourth graders will understand terms for relative location: en, entre, a la derecha, a la izquierda, debajo de, hacia arriba, sobre. They will identify furniture and decorations for specific rooms: muebles, sof¿¿, sill¿¿n, azulejos, banquito, cama, cuadro, estufa, flor, plantas, l¿¿mpara, mecedora, tina, mesa y sillas, escritorio, refrigerador.
Students in an ESL classroom identify the necessary requirements plants need to grow. Using Spanish worksheets, they label each part of a plant and state their function. They are given cutouts of a picture and the Spanish word in which they are to write the English word on the back.
Turn your classroom into a greenhouse with a lesson on plant growth. First, investigate the different parts of seeds, identifying the seed coat, cotyledon, and embryo. Then plant the seeds and watch them grow! Measure the new plants every couple of days to document their growth, moving some into a dark corner of the room to demonstrate their dependence on light. To ensure student success, model each step before allowing your young scientists to proceed with the experiment. Though somewhat time consuming, a great deal can be learned about plant life, as well as how to record and analyze scientific data.
Explore various ecosystems from around the world as your class discovers the interdependence of all living things. Using the provided sets of ecosystem cards, young scientists work in small groups building food webs to demonstrate the relationships between producers and consumers. To reinforce their understanding, consider allowing time for groups to share their work with the class. As an extension, remove an organism from each group's ecosystem and have them predict what changes they would expect to see.
This jeopardy PowerPoint covers 5 questions for each of the 5 kingdoms. 
This resource is rich with primary and secondary source material regarding major events in the Atlantic world during the Age of Revolution. While there are suggested classroom activities toward the beginning of the resource, its true value lies in the reproductions of such major historical documents as the United States Declaration of Independence, the Haitian Declaration of Independence, and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Use the sentence frames in the Classroom Guide as a solid framework for considering the theme of freedom and what it means to different individuals as you review the instructional materials.
It's time to roll up those sleeves and get a little dirty in the second lesson of this series on the science of food. Investigate where plants and animals get the minerals they need to live in this two-part exploration of soil. First, learners look carefully at soil samples, recording their observations and identifying the different materials they find. Then, plastic bottles filled with soil and water are shaken up in order to observe how the soil settles in different layers at the bottom. Measure these layers and discuss how soil is composed of a variety of materials. Use this activity to facilitate a better understanding of plant life, or as part of a lesson on geological processes.
Trace pollutants through the environment in the seventh lesson of this series on the science of food. Looking at a picture of the plants and animals in an aquatic ecosystem, learners use dot stickers to represent harmful chemicals as they move from the producers through the different levels of consumers. A clear demonstration of the widespread, negative effects of pollution and the impact it has on the food we eat. Reinforce these concepts with a reading of The Mysterious Marching Vegetables, connecting science and children's literature.
Students review the system of classification and the five kingdoms by completing written assessments. To aid in reviewing, they play a vertebrate card game or a version of Jeopardy. Students begin a take-home test in class.
Using Upton Sinclair's The Jungle, guide your class in the process of identifying unknown terms using context clues and formulating text-based answers. The lesson plan includes a useful worksheet incorporating scaffolding questions on an excerpt from the text, as well as two potential rubrics you can use for follow-up assessment writing. 
As you explore an excerpt from Upton Sinclair's The Jungle with your class, discuss how his descriptions of the meat-packing industry caught the public's attention and helped to promote change in the Progressive Era.
