Product Description
COMPLETE Unit NO PREP!! 3rd Grade Unit on Life Cycles: Growth and Development of Organisms
***************************************************************************************************
This is a hands-on, FUN, STEM-focused, COMPLETE unit of learning linked to the FOURTH grade standards of NGSS on LIFE CYCLES - {From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes}
***************************************************************************************************

***3-LS1-1. Developing and Using Models Modeling in 3–5 builds on K–2 experiences and progresses to building and revising simple models and using models to represent events and design solutions. Develop models to describe phenomena.

***3-LS1-1. Patterns of change can be used to make predictions.

*** 3-LS1-1.Scientific Knowledge is Based on Empirical Evidence Science findings are based on recognizing patterns.

***************************************************************************************************
Lesson Topics:

Lesson 1 - What’s the difference between living and nonliving things? {MRS GREN}
Lesson 2 - What is a life cycle?
Lesson 3 - What is a seed?

Lesson 10 - How do animals change throughout their life cycle?

**End of Unit Project - Animal Life Cycle Project**
{Students utilize their knowledge to design their very own species of animal that fits accurately into a group e.g. amphibians, mammals, fish. Students build a 3D model to display their animals life cycle and give a presentation to an audience}

***************************************************************************************************
What's included?

-75 + page interactive science journal to accompany the entire unit. Included in the journals are comprehension tasks, puzzles, experiments, reflection activities, research activities, writing tasks and much more.

- Detailed Comprehension tasks with questions to assess understanding.

- Hands-on activities, experiments, investigations to deepen student understanding and increase engagement.

- ***PBL end of unit project


***************************************************************************************************
When you buy this product your entire unit is planned and ready to go. You can either print off the entire journal for your students or pick and choose lessons to suit your own curriculum. Either way, it is an outstanding product to teach Life Cycles in a hands-on approach that the student will love.
