Students discover plant parts, their functions and life cycles as they investigate real plants. They learn how a plant is an important part of food chains and webs and how living organisms depend on them. They explore ecosystems and plant adaptations, as well as the human impact on the environment. Students record their learning in a nature journal as they take part in classroom investigations and scientific exploration in their schoolyard.

Diversity of Life

3rd-5th Grade

Students learn that within an ecosystem, producers, consumers, decomposers, predators and prey have unique adaptations which allow them to occupy diverse niches. All of these organisms work together forming food chains and food webs which enable an ecosystem to survive. Students investigate different plant and animal adaptations through hands-on activities and experiments.
