Product Description

Students begin by exploring the needs of plants. Students will explore plant parts and their functions through several activities that expand into higher level thinking. In the third section of this unit, Classifying Plants, students explore how scientists classify plants through hands-on activities and cooperative learning. Finally, for the last section of this unit, The Plant Life Cycle, students will read about Phoebe Plant’s life (going through the cycle), create their own Plant Cycle Wheel, and much more! The unit wraps up with students demonstrating their understanding of all areas of this unit through a photo album scrapbook or an optional autobiography.

Students begin by exploring the needs of plants. I have included a few experiments, but tried to keep this short, as I know many students grasp the needs of living things. I tried to incorporate some reading skills through a nonfiction article and some math skills with graphing results.

The next section of the unit is the Plant’s Structures and Functions. I placed a bit more emphasis here. I have included the seed, the flower, and fruit as plant parts. Students will explore plant parts and their functions through several activities that expand into higher level thinking. I have provided cause and effect activities, RAFT Writing, a game, a nonfiction reading piece, a few hands-on activities, and more. I have also included a very brief, surface look at photosynthesis. Students will enjoy role-playing how plants make food.

In the third section of this unit, Classifying Plants, students explore how scientists classify plants through hands-on activities and cooperative learning. Students will practice classifying all while reviewing plant structures.

Finally, for the last section of this unit, The Plant Life Cycle, students will read about Phoebe Plant’s life (going through the cycle), create their own Plant Cycle Wheel, and much more! The unit wraps up with students demonstrating their understanding of all areas of this unit through a photo album scrapbook or an optional autobiography.

This unit can be used as is, following it lesson by lesson. There are lots of activities provided throughout these pages that can either be utilized as anchor activities, centers, work for early finishers, or even combined to make a choice board. In addition, I have also placed enrichment opportunities to challenge your higher learners.

I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelors in Science degree and an elementary education certificate. I am certified to teach K-8 Self-Contained and Middle School Science. I have taught ever since graduation,with most of my experience in 5th grade. I'm currently completing my Masters program in Differentiation.  I utilize a lot of differentiated strategies along with the workshop model in reading, writing, math, and sometimes science. I love more hands-on activities that are related to real life for students to explore. I'm not a huge fan of worksheets, but do use them occasionally.

You're Awesome

Success!
