Reflection: Pacing Seed Structures: Days that Follow - Section 3: Discussion and Drawings


This portion of the lesson will continue over days. In order to see changes, I have student check their seeds every other day. They follow the same above procedure each time. If some groups begin to have a significant change in comparisons to the other groups I might ask the class to come check it out. In the first few observations, I do not do this. I only do this as we are really progressing. It allows me to point out more of the plants structure and the reason it is growing in this way.

Seed Structures: Days that Follow

Unit 7: Life Science
Lesson 5 of 14

Objective: SWBAT observe and analyze what is happening to their seeds over time.

Big Idea: In order to better understand the structure of plants, seed observations allow students to see how seeds change as they grow. They can see what is happening and understand how the structure of a plant begins.
