Plant Growth Activities for 5th Grade Science
The resources below will provide students a comprehensive understanding of plant growth. All of the following lessons are also included in the Kesler Science Membership.
The Plant Growth 5E Lesson includes materials for every "E" phase, including the Plant Growth Station Lab for Exploration and an interactive PowerPoint with digital INB templates for Explanation.
The lesson also includes introduction materials for Engagement, student-choice project ideas for Elaboration, and assessments for Evaluation.
After completing the Plant Growth 5E Lesson, students will be able to support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the idea that plant matter comes mostly from air and water, not from the soil.]
