Middle school students read about the parts of a flower and plant sexual reproduction, reinforcing both sexual reproduction (MS-LS3-2) and the specialized structures that increase the probability of reproduction (MS-LS1-4).

For this activity, students read a 1-page passage about the parts of a flower and plant sexual reproduction. As they read, they are instructed to color each of the corresponding flower parts on a diagram (on the back page). After the reading and diagram coloring is complete, students answer 8 text-dependent questions.

NGSSMS-LS3-2
Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation. Emphasis is on using models such as Punnett squares, diagrams, and simulations to describe the cause and effect relationship of gene transmission from parent(s) to offspring and resulting genetic variation.
NGSSMS-LS1-4
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. Examples of behaviors that affect the probability of animal reproduction could include nest building to protect young from cold, herding of animals to protect young from predators, and vocalization of animals and colorful plumage to attract mates for breeding. Examples of animal behaviors that affect the probability of plant reproduction could include transferring pollen or seeds, and creating conditions for seed germination and growth. Examples of plant structures could include bright flowers attracting butterflies that transfer pollen, flower nectar and odors that attract insects that transfer pollen, and hard shells on nuts that squirrels bury.
