This 30-page science mini-book was created to help teach the Next Generation Science Standards for 2nd grade in interdependent relationships in ecosystems.

It covers the following principles: what plants are, what plants need, why plants are important,the parts of plants, how animals help plants through pollination and seed dispersal, the plant life cycle, different kinds of plants (flowering vs. non-flowering), and plant adaptations in 4 different habitats: the forest, ocean, desert, and tropical rainforest.

Worksheets allow children to match plants to their habitats, sort needed vs. not needed for plants to grow, draw a model of AND write about seed dispersal and pollination, label the parts of a plant, draw what plants need, and label the life cycle of a plant.

The booklet contains a science glossary of important terms and 4 types of activities (cut-and-paste picture sorting, labeling, drawing and writing worksheets) for students to complete to demonstrate understanding.

The document is in a half-page format (two to a page) to save paper and make copying class sets quicker and easier. Enjoy! =)
