Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

The Plant Life Cycle


This is a blended learning unit for the 2nd Grade Plant Life Cycle Unit. This unit blends the use of technology through Google Classroom with hands on science in the classroom. 

Students begin by collecting data and making observations of the plant life cycle using Google Classroom. As lessons are taught, students begin developing their own models and illustrations to demonstrate their understanding of the plant life cycle. 

Learning Targets: 
Plan and conduct an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow.
Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.
Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
