I created this for my second graders. We use our textbook, but it is a little sparse so I created this unit in booklet form. Having everything I need for the unit in one booklet is super convenient especially when I am planning.
Here is a run down of what is inside of this unit. The websites are also included!
Pages 1 and 2- Teacher pages full of directions and tips as well as plans to go along with the booklet pages
Pages 3 and 4- Booklet covers (2 to choose from)
Page 5- Plant Parts (Jobs of the parts with mystery words)
Page 6- Label Parts of a Plant Diagram
Page 7- People Need Plants Fill-in-the-Blank Page (foods from plants)
Page 8- Plants are Food (Leaf, Stem, Root, and Flower Foods) Complete the table using the websites.
Page 9- Flower Parts Diagram and Pollination
Page 10- How do Plants Grow (Watch a little video the answer the questions) & Hands-on Seed Investigation, Germination
Page 11- Plants Growing Observation Log
Page 12- Seed Hunt (Hands-on) Tape seeds from fruits and vegetables to the booklet
Page 13- Leaves (Simple, Compound, and Needles)
Page 14- Life Cycle (Write a paragraph using Transitions)
Page 15 and 16 Unit Test
Page 17-24 Answer Keys
This unit is sure to keep your students engaged. It integrates a little social studies and writing too.
