This is an SBAC-style performance task for ELA focusing on the uses of plant parts.
There are three sources
(both fiction and nonfiction to foster greater synthesis), and three research questions
to follow them. The sources are written at a 4th grade reading level, but would also be appropriate for beginning of the year 5th graders. In Part 2, there are writing tasks
available for all three text types (narrative, informational, and opinion).
The article titles are:
2. Botanical Adventure
3. Parts of a Vascular Plant
