Learning Objective

Students will construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy. Students will also learn why certain leaves turn colors in the fall.

Description

This is a great fall science activity. This fall experiment will explore why Leaves changing color in the fall. The hands-on lab will demonstrate that green deciduous leaves have other pigments hidden within. Following the simple directions, students will see the other colors within a leaf appear. There are three interactive notebook flaps included to go with the lab and a slide show that explains the scientific information. This is a really fun and easy experiment to do with simple household materials. The results are dramatic and exciting.

ALSO INCLUDED:

This resource also has a CLOSE Reading Activity for 6th Grade that is aligned with CCSS for reading informational text for 6th Grade. It includes a scientific nonfiction passage (3 pages) explaining why and how autumn leaves of deciduous trees change colors.

This resource includes interactive notebook flaps and folds and response pages with text-dependent questions.

This resource includes:

  • informational text passages
  • response pages
  • interactive notebook flaps
  • hands-on lab

This resource is full of lots of activities to help your students dive into this scientific text and learn about the processes happening within the leaves. CLOSE Reading Why Do leaves Change Color In the Fall

Included: Autumn Leaf Experiment With Slide Show

Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms. Emphasis is on tracing movement of matter and flow of energy. Assessment does not include the biochemical mechanisms of photosynthesis.
Trace and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, distinguishing claims that are supported by reasons and evidence from claims that are not.
Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.
Determine an author’s point of view or purpose in a text and explain how it is conveyed in the text.
Analyze how a particular sentence, paragraph, chapter, or section fits into the overall structure of a text and contributes to the development of the ideas.
