PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This NGSS STEM and Project Based Learning Unit on seed dispersal helps students understand the life cycle of a plant and how they adapt their seeds to their environment. The students will read about the most common methods of seed dispersal and complete a research graphic organizer. Next, observe the dispersal methods used in your geographical area by collecting a variety of seeds on a nature walk and measuring the distances in which seeds have dispersed around your school. Then, complete your own scientific inquiry experiments to determine the dispersal method for a variety of seeds. After they have gained some understanding of the way seeds have adapted, they will receive scenario cards that describe an environmental change and will engineer an adaptation for a seed to help it survive these new conditions. As they work, they will complete the STEM graphic organizer that guides them through the design process. I've also included an end of project assessment and answer key.
