In this kindergarten science unit, students will learn that animals and plants need certain things. They will learn that animals and plants live in places that meet their needs and they will learn that animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs. Students will learn about animal homes and the different things that animals eat.
This resource includes:
- slide shows
- lesson plans
- a little book for emergent readers
- writing papers for emergent writers to trace
- sorting cards
- puzzle cards
- a lab on plants and age-appropriate worksheets.
This unit will take about three weeks if all pages are used.
This resource aligns with three kindergarten NGSS standards.
K-LS1-1. Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive. [Clarification Statement: Examples of patterns could include that animals need to take in food
K-ESS3-1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live.
K-ESS2-2. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs
Standard K.2.1 Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to describe patterns of what living things (plants and animals, including humans) need to survive. Emphasize the similarities and differences between the survival needs of all living things. Examples could include that plants depend on air, water, minerals, and light to survive, or animals depend on plants or other animals to survive. (LS1.C)
Standard K.2.2 Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about patterns in the relationships between the needs of different living things (plants and animals, including humans) and the places they live. Emphasize that living things need water, air, and resources and that they live in places that have the things they need. Examples could include investigating plants grown in various locations and comparing the results or comparing animals with the places they live. (LS2.B, ESS3.A)
Standard K.2.3 Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about how living things (plants and animals, including humans) affect their surroundings to survive. Examples could include squirrels digging in the ground to hide their food.
