The life cycle of the flowering plant is awesome! One of my favorite ways to teach this information is by using pictures. The document is split into 5 different columns. Each column has a large section to draw that step of the life cycle and fill in the blank section underneath. This directly aligns to the 2005 plant standards for South Carolina. It allows for differentiation and can be done either whole group or individually. There isn't just one way to draw the stage and gives the students a lot of freedom to be creative.
The last picture can be almost anything! There are multiple "answers" to how a seed is dispersed.
After it's completed, it can be cut into 5 strips and made into a small booklet. It has a section at the top of each strip for glue or staples! (Staples seem to work much better!) It fits perfectly into a journal, all you need to do is have the students glue the last page of the "book" in their journal after it is stapled! I usually take germination and place it on the top and go in order that way- but there are multiple ways to use this assignment.
