This Power Point is designed to be used as a stand alone presentation on parts that plants and animals have to help them survive, grow and meet their needs. This also would be useful in conjunction with a lesson on the NGSS : Solution to a Human Problem - Grade 1 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes:1-LS1-1. Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.
Notes are included for each colorful slide with sample discussion questions and sample answers. All photos are personal ones of Sheryl Mercier or downloaded under theCreative Commons Zero (CC0) license from Pexel and Pixabay.
