Are you covering structure and function in your 4th grade science class?
You will LOVE this COMPLETE UNIT that fully addresses Life Science Standards for 4th grade!
This unit is aligned with NGSS 4-LS1-1 and 4-LS1-2, CCSS RI.4.1, RI.4.3, and RI4.4, and Utah SEEd 4.1.1 & 4.1.2!
This is a large unit with lots of activities. If you use my suggested schedule, this will cover 9 days in your science class!
Students will learn that animals and plants have internal and external structures, and that they each serve a specific function.
They will also learn about structural and behavioral adaptations in animals.
So much is included in this unit!
There are three informative PowerPoint presentations:
There are five lesson plans in the 5-E format with response pages and worksheets.
They include reading comprehension questions, lab pages, interactive notebook flaps, graphic organizers, and a layered flipbook!
There's a hands-on lab with clear directions on how to dissect a flower, label the parts, and understand the function of each part.
All you need to provide is one flower for each group of students!
Students will also have the opportunity to use QR codes for some independent research on adaptations. Clickable links are provided if you do not have access to QR codes.
To wrap up the unit, I've included a true and false quiz for assessment.
Your time is precious - don't waste your free time creating your own unit on Structure and Function.
I've done the work for you!
This complete unit has almost 200 PERFECT reviews on Teachers Pay Teachers.

I am thrilled with this unit. It is really well planned and easy for a teacher to implement. The directions were clear and the labs used low cost household materials.
