Diagram the growth process of a plant. Arrange pictures in sequential order. Explain how a plant grows. Discuss (class) What is a seed? Why is it important? How does a seed grow into a plant? Explain the steps in plant growth. Practice (student) Using Flow Chart p. 12, draw the steps in the growth process of plants. Label your drawings with the words first, next, then, and last. Cut out each box on Flow Chart p. 12. Mix up the steps and put them back into the correct order. Evaluate Evaluate each student s Flow Chart p. 12 for correctness. Observe students ability to reorder the steps in the growth process. Activity Procedures Prepare Copy Flow Chart p. 12 for each student. Pretest (pairs, class) With a partner, talk about the steps you take to brush your teeth. Share your ideas with the class, putting the steps in order.

5 TEACHING PARTS OF PLANTS 5 Lesson 3 Classroom Gardeners Purpose: Students will plant seeds and record their growth as they become plants. Materials Parts of Plants books clear plastic cups potting soil seeds water newspaper Objectives Describe the function of a seed. Compare the growth rate of two or more plants. Interpret measurement data. Document the growth of a seed into a mature plant. Create a miniature garden. Measure the growth of a plant. Activity Procedures Prepare Gather planting materials. Put newspapers down in the planting station. Divide students into small groups for planting. Pretest (student) What happens to a seed that is planted in the ground? Read (teacher, class) Read Parts of Plants books. rulers How Tall? p. 13 pencils masking tape drawing paper paper cups Discuss (class) What is a seed? How does a seed grow into a plant? Model Fill a clear plastic cup 2 3 full of potting soil. Plant two or three seeds along the outer edges of the soil, visible through the cup. (This will allow students to see the root and sprout growth before the plants reach the surface of the soil.) Label the seeds by putting small pieces of masking tape with letters near each seed planted. This will allow students to observe and measure the same plant repeatedly. Water the seeds. Place the clear cup into a paper cup, which can be removed to observe root growth. Practice (small group) Follow the procedure for planting seeds modeled by your teacher. Water seeds regularly. Practice (student) Record your plant s height weekly on How Tall? p. 13. Draw a weekly picture of your plant. (optional) Compare the growth rate of two plants. Discuss (small group, teacher) How much did your plants grow each week? Did they grow more during certain weeks? Did they grow at the same rate? Evaluate Assess each student s How Tall? worksheet p. 13 for completeness. Observe student participation in discussions.

6 6 TEACHING PARTS OF PLANTS Lesson 4 Stem Experiment Purpose: Students will understand how stems carry water and nutrients to plants leaves. Materials Roots and Stems books celery stalks (best with some leaves remaining) red food coloring Objectives Define the word stem. Discuss the functions of a plant s stem. Illustrate the outcome of an experiment. Analyze the results of an experiment. Explain how a plant s stem is similar to a person s veins. Summarize the results of an experiment. Activity Procedures Prepare Gather materials for stem experiment. Write the words Before and After on the board. Pretest (class) Ask students how they think plants get and use water and nutrients from the soil. Read (teacher, class) Read Roots and Stems books. clear glass jars water pencils crayons knife drawing paper Discuss (class) What did you learn about roots? What did you learn about stems? What do stems do for plants? Model Tell students that you are going to do an experiment to see how a stem carries water to the leaves of a plant. The students will draw what happens. Fold a piece of drawing paper lengthwise, making two columns. Write Before at the top of the left column, and After at the top of the right. Practice (student, teacher, class) Students will fold and label drawing paper as modeled. Place celery stalks in jars with inches of clear tap water. Put jars in several locations around the room so all students can see. Students will draw what they see under the Before heading on their papers. Tell students that you are going to add food coloring to the water, and ask them to predict what will happen to the celery stalk. Add enough red food coloring to each jar of water to turn the water red. After about 45 minutes you will see red on the tips of the celery leaves. Ask students to look at the celery again. Have them draw what they see under the After heading on their papers. How are the two pictures different? Discuss what happened to the celery. Cut the celery crosswise to reveal the veins that carried the food coloring up the stem. How are these veins like the veins in a person s body? Evaluate Assess the accuracy of students Before and After drawings. Observe students participation in class discussion and explanations for the changes in the celery.

7 TEACHING PARTS OF PLANTS 7 Lesson 5 So Many Leaves Purpose: Students will observe and sort a variety of leaves. Materials Leaves book Kinds of Leaves p. 14 leaves of different shapes, sizes, and colors Objectives Recall the names of plant parts. Compare various kinds of leaves. Classify leaves by similar characteristics. Identify leaf characteristics. Arrange items on a chart. Explain categories for classification. Activity procedures drawing paper crayons pencils Prepare Copy Kinds of Leaves p. 14 for each student. Gather leaves of different shapes, sizes, and colors. (This is a good activity for autumn when leaves have changed colors.) Distribute a variety of leaves to each child during the practice exercise. Pretest (class, teacher) Draw a large flowering plant on the board. Ask students to tell you which parts are the leaves. Ask students to describe a leaf. Are all leaves the same? How can they be different? Read Read Leaves book. Discuss (class) What did you learn about leaves? In what ways are leaves alike? How are they different? Model Show students a variety of leaves. Ask them for ideas about how you could group leaves into categories. Glue several leaves onto Kinds of Leaves p. 14, demonstrating different ways that leaves could be categorized. Practice (student) Look through your leaves and sort them by common characteristics. Are they the same size? The same shape? The same color? How else could they be categorized? Glue each group of leaves onto a different square on Kinds of Leaves p. 14, so leaves with like traits are all in the same square. Evaluate As students glue their leaves onto Kinds of Leaves p. 14, circulate and ask them how they grouped their leaves. Evaluate Kinds of Leaves p. 14 for logic of categories. Assess students explanations of their leaf categories. Extension (student) Make leaf rubbings by placing leaves under drawing paper and coloring over the leaves. Use a variety of leaves and colors.
