This unit is about plants and how they are living things. In this unit the students will discuss the basic needs of a plant and what each plant needs to survive. Also in this unit, the student will learn the different parts of a plant and the function of each part. In addition, the students will conduct an experiment in which they collect, observe and log data in their science journal notebooks. At the end of experiment, the students will present to the class their final project using oral and written responses. I added different resource books and included a KWL chart. Language Arts and Social Studies are secondary topics in this unit.

Reviewer Comments:

This lesson plan has a link to a web site that allows students to virtually solve algebra equations on a balance scale. The lesson plan itself is simple, but succinct, so that teachers can follow it easily. In order to do this lesson in their classrooms, students need access to their own computer and the Internet. The web site can also be used by students for algebra homework. The lesson is most appropriate for 6th-9th grade students who are learning algebra.
