Explore plant growth, life cycles, and the needs of living things in this exciting, inquiry-based, hands-on unit. First, students will learn foundational information and vocabulary about plants through two teacher-led activities. Next, students will participate in plant growth projects to experience plant growth and changes firsthand.

What’s Included in this Unit Pack?

  • Teacher Instructions - Detailed instructions for all sections of this unit
  • The Parts of a Plant - Student reference pages, worksheets, and activities
  • The Life Cycle of a Plant - A simple lifecycle activity and reference page
  • Mini Book - Plant Vocabulary mini-book to help students learn simple vocabulary before moving on to more complex experiments
  • Plant Growth Journal - Students will grow their own small plants in the classroom and track the growth using scientific observations.
  • Lettuce Experiment - Students will explore how the structure of a plant is uniquely designed to help it absorb water.
  • Environment Experiment - Students will observe four different plants under different controlled environments to answer the question "What do plants need to grow?"

Also includes a digital Google Slides version of all student pages that can be uploaded easily into GOOGLE CLASSROOM. Digital Pages include:

  • Student reference pages (parts of a plant, plant life cycles, vocabulary), Plant Vocabulary Digital Mini-Book, click-and-drag parts of a plant labeling activity, click-and-drag life cycle of a plant labeling activity, Plant observation journal student instructions and student observation pages, Lettuce Experiment student instructions and student observation pages, Environment Experiment student instructions and student observation pages.

Much of this unit asks students to make scientific observations as they grow their own plant(s) in the classroom. This can be done very economically by growing beans, peas, or radishes in a clear plastic cup (“Solo-cup” size), in simple potting soil.

The three experiments come with guiding inquiry questions. Printables to help experiment success are also included.

NGSS2-LS2-1
Plan and conduct an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow. Assessment is limited to testing one variable at a time.
Recall information from experiences or gather information from print and digital sources; take brief notes on sources and sort evidence into provided categories.
Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection.
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units-whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
