This supplemental resource product is aligned to Next Generation Science Standard MS-LS1-4 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes: Use argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures affect the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants respectively.
This product emphasizes animal behaviors. (Note: Specialized Plant Structure is addressed in a separate product.)
Included are two posters/charts that take a basic and more specific look at both animal reproductive behaviors and the categories into which they fall. Also included are half-sheets of both posters for students' interactive science notebooks.
There are 30 "cards" with examples of animal reproductive behaviors that students are instructed to sort into 6 different categories. An answer key is included. Great for a science center!
Additionally, there is a set of questions designed to make students "think" and research, if desired. There are also two research assignments, including composition forms for reporting findings.
