Stated Objectives
Procedures for Lesson
Assessment or
Students will
Know that flowering plants are called angiosperms and that not all plants have
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
Teacher observations, informal class discussions and daily reviews
