Plants

Unit Learning Target

I know that plants, having specific structures, functions and processes make them important to life and other biological processes on earth.

Unit Reading Target

I can from my selected reading understand very basic plant form and functions.

Vocabulary Review Target

I can from using Smart Ideas create a diagram that I can use as a personal reference that helps me understand key plant vocabulary words.

Lab and Activities Targets

Really Big Flower

I can using my drawing, recalling, and research skills create a diagram of a selected flower.

Seed Dissection

I can using my microscope, recalling, and research skills identify the major part of a plant seed.

Seed Identification

I can using my skills at following dichotomous keys and plant knowledge identify the seeds of specific plant species.

Wildflower Identification

I can using my skills at following dichotomous keys and plant knowledge identify wildflower species of Missouri and other areas of the United States.

Tree Identification

I can using my skills at following dichotomous keys and plant knowledge identify several tree species of Missouri and other areas of the United States.

Radiation Seeds

I can using the scientific method compare and contrast the effects of radiation on plant growth.

Plant Tropisms

I can using the scientific method design and test for plant tropisms, analyze the the results, and report the outcomes.

 

 

Animals

 

Unit Learning Target

I know that animals, having specific structures, functions and processes make them important to life and other biological processes on earth.

Unit Reading Target

I can from my selected reading understand very basic animal form and functions.
(In this unit reading will be subdivided into smaller sections by animal class)

Vocabulary Review Target

I can from using Project Poster create a diagram that I can use as a personal reference that helps me understand key animal vocabulary words.
(In this unit vocabulary reviews will be subdivded into 4 different tasks with the same target outcome)
