Product Description
This lesson is compatible with the 2nd Grade Next Generation Science Standards* 2-LS2-2 and 2-LS4-1, which states that the student will “[d]evelop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.”

The student will also “[m]ake observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.”

This lesson teaches students about biodiversity and adaptations through the study of different types of plant seeds. It begins with an introduction to seeds through a book study, it then discusses the ecology of seeds and examines the variety of seed dispersal methods.

For the first part of the project, students will sort a collection of real seeds and pictures of seeds based on their dispersal methods. They will then move on to complete an Internet study on the diversity and ecology of 9 different types of seeds.

The next part of the hands-on project is all about seed model making. The students will make their own parachutes, helicopters, poppers, as well as examine Velcro up close to see how it is similar to some seeds.

The lesson ends in an assessment and review of the objectives.

Here is what’s included in the lesson:

-Clickable table of contents

-Teacher materials list and notes

-A Next Generation Science Standards* Poster stating “I can…” or “I understand…” statements aligned with the standards
