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
