Life Cycle of a Sunflower: Students will learn about a sunflower’s life cycle. Students will read about sunflowers and all the stages of their life. This resource has sorting cards so that students can make a model of the life cycle of a sunflower,. This resource addresses the standard for 3rd-grade NGSS 3-LS1-1 Students will learn all about the life cycle of a sunflower with these great sunflower activities. This can be used as a Distance Learning Packet.

This resource addresses the NGSS Disciplinary Core Idea: Molecules and Organisms: Structure and Processes.

This resource includes lesson plans, task cards, sequencing cards, a nonfiction passage, response pages, interactive notebook flaps, and lab ideas for learning about the life cycle of a sunflower.

Addressed: NGSS 3-LS1-1 Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.

This resource is also aligned with the science standards for Utah’s third grade.

Utah SEEd 3.2.1 Develop models to describe patterns of change that organisms go through during their life cycles. Emphasize that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles, but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.

The following Science and Engineering Practices will be used by students:

Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)

Developing and using models

Planning and carrying out investigations

Analyzing and interpreting data

Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering) Engaging in argument from evidence

Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!
