Plants are the perfect topic for any middle school class. Seeds grow easily and students love to try new foods. Engage your students with this NO PREP, Complete lesson bundle as they learn about plants. Students will explore the “green stuff” around them by learning plan groups, classification, and structures. Use this resource to teach face to face, practice online or do a little of both. Teachers will love the editable presentations, student note file, printable practice, and online help materials. The Cornell style incomplete notes guide student’s attention and allow them to summarize their learning. Included are both PRINT and ONLINE resources to make this lesson work in the classroom or at home. The Google Interactives give students a quick and easy way to review the lesson content. Need an easy makeup assignment? Use the recorded lessons. Links to a Quizizz practice assessment are included. This lesson is designed and tested for a mainstreamed middle school science classroom of 24 students meeting daily for 40 minutes.

Emphasis is on the cell functioning as a whole system and the primary role of identified parts of the cell, specifically the nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, cell membrane, and cell wall. Assessment of organelle structure/function relationships is limited to the cell wall and cell membrane. Assessment of the function of the other organelles is limited to their relationship to the whole cell. Assessment does not include the biochemical function of cells or cell parts.
