This 1 – 2 Day lesson package on How Living Things Reproduce and Grow lesson begins with an introduction to the importance of reproduction. It then describes Sexual Reproduction in Animals and Plants as well as Asexual Reproduction. The lesson ends with an overview of How Living Things Grow and briefly touches on the topic of cell division/mitosis.
The PowerPoint contains diagrams, examples and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint), 6 embedded videos and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.
Included in the lesson package is:
– The teacher version of the PowerPoint

– 6 videos embedded into the PowerPoint
– Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
