Students will

Know that flowering plants are called angiosperms and that not all plants have
flowers.

Know the purpose of a flower is to aid the plant in reproduction.

Identify various way flowers are designed to attract pollinators and ensure
pollen transfer during “The Birds and the Bees” video.

Name nine major parts of the flower and know the function of these parts.

Examine and identify flower structures on actually flowers.

Identify plants as monocots or dicots.

Know the events of the cycle of plant reproduction in angiosperms.

Navigate through a Keynote presentation.
Day One: Read pages 271-273, 281 and 282 in Science Insights textbook. Answer
questions on “Monocots and Dicots” / “Flower Parts” worksheet.
Day Two: Navigate through “Structures of a Flower” Keynote. Label flower parts, note
functions of parts and color “Parts of a Flower” worksheet.
Day Three: Read “The Birds and the Bees” video. Make a list of ways flowers are
designed to attract pollinators and ensure pollen transfer.
Day Four: Discuss and correct all previous assignments.
Day Five: Describe the events of the cycle of plant reproduction in angiosperms. Students
record “Pollination/Fertilization” notes. Students work with a partner to arrange the
“Plant Reproduction Cycle” events in order in the form of a never-ending circle.
Day Six: “Flower Dissection” Lab.
Day Seven: Introduce “Flower Parts” Keynote project. Explain storyboard and grading
checklist. Use Proxima to demonstrate creating text boxes, new slides and hyperlinks.
Review tools for editing objects and text.
Day Eight-Ten: In groups of three, students create a Keynote presentation identifying
flower structure names, their functions and other facts about each flower part.
Day Eleven: “Plant Reproduction” Unit Exam and presentations of Keynote project
