Living Things: Parts and Purposes
This collection reinforces the question:
How do the parts of plants and animals help them to grow and survive?
Students will look for patterns as they observe various plant and animal artifacts to determine the necessary parts for living organisms.
The visible thinking routine of "parts, purposes and complexities" will be at the center of this collection as we analyze the needs of plants and animals and how their parts satisfy those needs. While we took a deep dive into just a couple of the living things, I've included a few other artifacts for educator choice.
This collection also utilizes the See, Think, Wonder routine to help pique student interest, build student engagement and introduce the concept of parts and purposes of living things.
*I paired this lesson with a real world observation of a plant to observe, examine and describe the function of plant parts.
