Cross-Curricular Focus: Life Science Plant Life Cycles

Every living thing goes through changes. Living things grow through different stages. Then they reach the end of their life cycles and die. There are many kinds of plants. Each kind has its own life cycle. Many plants start their life cycles as a seed. The seed needs certain things or it will not grow into a plant. Sometimes seeds wait in the ground until they can get the things they need. They wait for warmth from the sun. They wait for water. When they have what they need, they start to grow. A tiny little sprout will push out of each seed. The sprouts stretch up until they poke through the dirt and into the air. The plants continue to grow when they get sunshine and water. The stems grow taller and leaves unfold. More leaves and stems grow on the main stems. The adult plants grow flowers. The flowers of many plants make fruit. The fruit has seeds inside it so that more, new plants can grow. New plants look like their parent plants. Seeds from a parent plant will grow into the same kind of plant as the parent. When a seed begins to grow, it is the beginning of another plant life cycle.

Answer the following questions based on the reading passage.

1) What is the process of living, growing, changing, and dying called? ________________________________

2) How do many plants begin? ________________________________

3) What two things does a seed need to have with it in the ground to be able to grow? ________________________________

4) Where can you usually find seeds in an adult plant? ________________________________

5) What kind of plant will a seed grow into? _________________________________________

5/5 Tuesday Use 10 spelling  words in statement sentences and  underline the verb (words that show actions) red.

 Draw the stages of a plant in its lifecycle.

This is Tuesday 5/5 Math

Wednesday 5/6 Optional Activity: Grow your own sprout!

You will need:                                                            

Small plastic zipper storage bag

 Dried, uncooked beans, peas, or seeds

 Paper towels

 Water

1.Before starting the experiment, soak your bean seeds overnight in water. This will sort of “wake up” the seeds and get them ready to germinate. You’ll get faster results if you pre-soak your bean seeds this way. Drain the seeds before placing them in the bag.

2. Dampen a paper towel and fold it into the bag.

3.Place the seeds along one side of the bag, pressing them against the paper towel. Seal the bag tightly, and hang in a window using tape. Make sure the beans are visible on the side of the window where the kids will be observing their seeds sprout.

4. Wait 24 hours. You should be able to see the seeds start to pop open and sprout after this time.

5.Within 3 days to a week, you’ll have fully sprouted seeds! In a few more days, you’ll see the leaves start to emerge. At this point, your beans are ready to move to soil.

6. Plant them in a rainboot garden, or another small planter and watch them continue to grow!

5/6 Wednesday Spelling: Write the spelling words 3 times in 3 different colors. Use sidewalk chalk and  send me a picture!

5/6 Language Arts: Add ending punctuation to the sentences below.

1. Put that down

2. The bird ate the worm

3. Can you hold this for me

4. Get away from the edge

Underline the verb in each sentence below.

1. Mom cooked dinner last night.

2. Charlie wanted ice cream for dessert.

3. Capt. Fraley says good morning every day.

5/6 Math

5/7 Thursday Spelling: Write your words in ABC order.

5/7 Language Arts:

Is the underlined noun common or proper?

Common = ordinary, not specific

Proper = Name of a specific person, place or thing HINT: It always gets a capital letter!!

1. Applebee’s is my favorite restaurant.

Lesson Plan: May 5, 2020
Teacher:C.Scott
Subject:6th  Grade Physical Education
Objective:At the end of this lesson, cadets will: Students will develop ways to keep themselves physically active.   Students will learn ways to benefit themselves from being physically active.
Materials Needed:(Video Clips, Computers, Paper, Pen or Pencil, etc.)   Physical Education: “Children and adolescents should do 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. Most of the 60 minutes should be either moderate- or vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity, and should include vigorous-intensity physical activity at least 3 days a week. As part of their 60 or more minutes of daily physical activity, children and adolescents should include muscle-strengthening activities, like climbing, at least 3 days a week and bone-strengthening activities, like jumping, at least 3 days a week. Children and adolescents are often active in short bursts of time rather than for sustained periods of time, and these short bursts can add up to meet physical activity needs. Physical activities for children and adolescents should be developmentally appropriate, fun, and offer variety.” (USDA, 2019)    
Assignment: (As written for the cadets)For Physical Education class today, you are required to do twenty minutes or more of moderate to vigorous activity. You need to record what your exercises are and the specific amount of time that you performed that exercise. Playing video games does not count as physical activity, even if they are sports games. Playing sports and physically active games, working out, shoveling snow, are all examples of moderate to vigorous physical activity.   
Verification: (What will the cadets give the instructor?  What is needed in order to prove the objective has been met?)Email exercise journal to cscott@goapa.org May 8
