New! Photosynthesis: How do plants make food?
3rd - 4th
Students study why plants are green and how water is transported in them. They examine how plants respond to different amounts of light.
Evidence of Photosynthesis
Hands on science is the way to go! Learners conduct a lab experiment to help them explain how plants make food through photosynthesis. They test for the presence of starch in leaves using iodine solution and identify the basic things plants need to produce food. Includes helpful teacher notes.
Plants Alive! How Plants Grow and Move
Young scholars explore how plants move in response to the environment. In this plant lesson, students engage in three different experiments to investigate how plants grow and move. Resources available in English and French.
Typical Conceptual Questions for Physics I - Light and Quantum
This is a stellar overview of everything light and quantum! There are 30 multiple choice questions, none of them requiring any mathematical computation. There are a few diagrams to analyze: light rays striking reflective and refractive materials, spectral lines, and more. You can use this comprehensive set of conceptual questions as an exam.
The Mysterious Plant Caper
Students investigate the basic parts of plant and that plants are living things which require water, air, light and nutrients for survival. They do this through a series of scientific experiements and multi-curricular hands-on activities.
Monster Plants Storia Teaching Guide
Who wouldn't want to read a book about monster plants? Get those kids into informational texts with an engaging topic, like meat eating plants! You'll use the teaching guide to provide structured practice as your class reads to comprehend. They'll make predictions, preview vocabulary, define cause and effect, and engage in small and full group discussions. Everything needed for instruction is included in this well-constructed resource.
Why Plants Are Green
Students discover the properties of chlorophyll in plants. In this plant biology lesson, students conduct an experiment to find where the chlorophyll in the plant is located. Students are split into small groups and study plant parts. Additionally, students study what happens to each plant part when sprayed with acetone. In their small groups, students infer what part of the plant contains the chlorophyll based on the reaction with the acetone. Students fill out a result chart.
Students conduct a variety of experiments on photosynthesis. For this biology lesson, students identify the factors required for the process to occur. They perform computerized experiments to test the amount of oxygen produced when plants are exposed to different light sources.
Transportation in Plants
Students investigate how plants transport water and nutrients through the plant. In this transportation in plants lesson plan, students use glass tubing, celery stalks, food coloring and leaves from plants to observe adhesion and cohesion of water up the tube and stalk. They also observe the stomata in plants and explain the transpiration theory of how water moves in and out of the cells.
Why Are Plants Green?
Students smash plant parts and wait for visibility of chlorophyl to show why plants turn green. In this green plants lesson plan, students use acetone and filter paper for this experiment.
What Plants Need
Students plant seeds in milk cartons, over the next two weeks, they watch the plants closely to see how they grow and change. They keep a photo journal to record the growth of the plant.
