Grade 4: Exploring Structures and Functions (4-LS1-1)


This unit was taught in a 4th-grade classroom in Chico, CA. By the end of this unit, students were to create an argument that plants and animals have structures and functions that help support their survival, growth, reproduction, and behavior. The main point of the lesson activities was to provide opportunities for students to discover, experience, and explore the evidence that supports this claim and would provide an opportunity for them to make these realizations and explain their understanding through their summative assessment. During each lesson activity either survival, growth, reproduction, and/or behavior were emphasized on.
