Description

Students love these engaging activities. Easy to follow and fun to use and teach with. You don't have to add anything. This comprehensive Middle School NGSS 5E lesson plan aligns perfectly with the NGSS Middle School MS-LS1-4 standard "Use argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures affect the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants respectively".


"The 5E's where amazing to follow. My kids got engaged with the lab stations, which led to notes, and then an activity. We finished the unit with a quiz. very helpful". LeanneD.

"My students enjoyed the videos and this activity was NO prep needed! We loved it".

Science Stations

Watch It – This is a great video that is sure to engage your students.


Read It – at this station the students will read about the Corpse Flower. Be prepared for some of them to be grossed out.

Research It – here the students use a computer/browser and navigate to a reliable news source where they learn about new research on how plants use scent patterns to guide bees towards nectar.

Infer It [plant] – students read a sheet showing photos and descriptions of various plants. They must infer from the photos how the plant is adapted for successful reproduction.

Infer It [animal] – student read a sheet showing photos and descriptions of various animals. They must infer from the photos how the animal is adapted for successful reproduction.

Illustrate It – this station allows the students to use their imagination. They can either design a wind pollinated or animal pollinated plant. The students must justify their decisions.

NGSSMS-LS1-4
Use argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures affect the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants respectively. Examples of behaviors that affect the probability of animal reproduction could include nest building to protect young from cold, herding of animals to protect young from predators, and vocalization of animals and colorful plumage to attract mates for breeding. Examples of animal behaviors that affect the probability of plant reproduction could include transferring pollen or seeds, and creating conditions for seed germination and growth. Examples of plant structures could include bright flowers attracting butterflies that transfer pollen, flower nectar and odors that attract insects that transfer pollen, and hard shells on nuts that squirrels bury.
