Product Description
This resource contains five informational reading passages about plant adaptations. It was made for the NGSS 3-LS2 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics. It covers the following plants in the the following ecosystems:

cactus - desert
seaweed - ocean
bearberry shrub - arctic tundra
water lily - wetlands
maple tree - temperate forest


The passages were written with third graders in mind, but the information is very interesting and would be useful for upper grades as well. Even I learned things while researching the adaptations!
There is a tips sheet for teachers, examples of student work, and two recording sheets (differentiated) for students on which they can note the adaptations that their given plant makes in order to survive in its ecosystem.
