This 5E Explain lesson will solidify your students' understanding of the 7 life processes that all organisms do. This can be used as part of my sequence of Life Processes 5E lessons (see links below) or it can be used as a stand-alone lesson.
This file includes a 14-slide interactive Powerpoint which contains DO NOW activities and 5 video clips to illustrate some of the concepts. Also included are 4 pages of student notes to go along with the Powerpoint presentation. There are spaces on the notes for students to complete the DO NOW activities.
Lastly, there is a CER (Claim - Evidence - Reasoning) worksheet to complete. This CER contains a short informational text on viruses and asks students to answer the question "Are viruses living or nonliving?" This CER can be used as classwork, homework or a formative assessment.
As part of a 5E Inquiry approach to the Life Processes, this lesson nicely fulfills the Explain portion of the 5Es!
