Product Description
Life Cycles: Plant Edition {A perfect packet for the spring and when celebrating Earth Day!}

This packet will help your kindergarten and first grade students learn, understand, and practice using the science terms used when talking about a plant's life cycle. It also will provide you with resources to make your unit come to life. By integrating science and non-fiction into your language lessons, you not only create an enthusiasm in your students, but you can create the "hook" you need to engage even the most reluctant learners.

This packet includes many resources including: fully written out 5-E lesson plans, 3- part cards, pocket chart cards, (both featuring high quality pictures) student vocabulary books, center activities, posters, recording pages, science activities/projects, and so much more!

In using this pack, students will meet these objectives:
-Students will learn the different stages in a plant's life cycle.
-Students will use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals need to survive.
-Students will observe changes that are part of a simple life cycle.
-Students will learn the different parts of a plant: roots, stem, leaf, flower.
-Students will practice labeling the parts of a plant, flower, and life cycle of a plant.
-Students will learn the vocabulary words: seed, seedling, sprout, stamen, pistil, flower, stem, leaf, bulb, gardener, vein, sunlight, stalk, fibrous root, taproot, germination, and more!

There are many opportunities for your students to use this engaging topic to research and write about what they are learning. The packet includes activities, recording pages, mini books, {MANY!} science experiments, interactive flip book pages, activities, and more!

The 5-E lesson plans included are:
1. The seed and bulb investigation begins.
2. Plant Needs Investigation: What do seeds need in order to grow?
3. Root Investigation: How do roots work?
4. Stem Investigation: What does the stem of a plant do?
5. Leaf Hunt: How many different shapes of leaves can we find on a nature walk?
6. Flowers: Label the parts of a flower (dissection)
7. Tops and Bottoms Investigation: What parts of a plant can we eat?
8. Tops and Bottoms hallway display project OR life cycle project

All lessons are presented in the 5-E format. (engage, explore, explain, elaborate, evaluate) They are written out step by step! Each lesson also comes with beautiful pictures and engaging activities to help your children understand the objectives in a hands-on way. Many of the lessons also contain links to videos and resources to use while teaching the lesson! I have also included many engaging science activities, experiments, and crafts to go along with the lessons!

Your students will LOVE these lessons.
