Description

OVERVIEW

Students read text and view rich, authentic media as they learn about life cycles, as living things are born, grow and reproduce. The lesson pack contains 14 pages and was written for grade 3 students but is also appropriate for students in grades 2 and 4. Contains video clip on flower and plant life cycle. This lesson typically takes 2 sessions to teach. The number of sessions depends on depth of study, completion of assessment, and amount of session time devoted to class discussion. The content and media have been designed to encourage class discussion. The high-interest rainforest theme is used to present NGSS-aligned life science content. 

This PDF is a TpT digital activity. It has an interactive layer so students can highlight text, draw, and fill in answer boxes when used in Google Classroom.  A good alternative to physical print outs, great for distance learning. 

A PowerPoint version of this lesson is also available on TpT. However, Google Slides and PowerPoints do not currently support TpT interactive layers.
