Plants! They are all around us. They are very essential for us as they provide oxygen, food, and even shelter. Plants must be classified into identifiable groups for us to have a clear, organized way of identifying the diverse array of plants that inhabit the planet. Plants can be classified based on their size, shape, and color as well as based on their ability to produce a flower or not. Flowering plants grow flowers and use seeds to reproduce or make more plants like them. Non-flowering plants do not grow flowers and use either seeds or spores. In this video, Ms. LaPierre is going to teach you all about deciduous trees, evergreen trees, flowering plants, coniferous plants, and spores.
This video satisfies the 3-LS1-1 requirement for third-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
3-LS1-1. Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.
