Botany Unit – Plant Kingdom Worksheets and more!

I have added over 25 new pages to the Botany Unit! These new pages are all about the Plant Kingdom.  We went over plant classification and learned about the life cycles of mosses, ferns, gymnosperms (conifers & cycads), and angiosperms (flowering plants).

The Plant Kingdom Worksheets

The first set of worksheets goes over the basics about each of the four groups of the Plant Kingdom and some terms like vascular and non-vascular, xylem and phloem, haploid and diploid.

We reviewed what plants need to survive and basics about the four groups of plants: 1) bryophytes: moss and liverworts 2) ferns & lycophytes 3) gymnosperms: conifers, cycads 4) angiosperms: flowering plants

It was in that unit that we went into depth about using a dichotomous key and learned about the animal phyla. This is available on its own or in our Biology BUNDLE of 3.

We then went over the life cycle of mosses and liverworts. There are several options to choose from, depending on the age of your kids/students. There is a page with a basic diagram, one for note-taking, a fill-in-the-blank option or one with full notes.

Fern Life Cycle Worksheets

This packet covers the life cycle of ferns:

Conifer Life Cycle Worksheets

We went over the life cycle of gymnosperms – conifers. Like the other sets, this one has full teacher notes as well is different options for the students to take notes (a more simplistic version for younger students, a fill-in-the-blank page or a note-taking page).

Angiosperm Worksheets – Parts of a Flower, Parts of a Seed

From there, we went on to talk about angiosperms – the flowering plants. We talked about the two types of angiosperms – monocots and dicots.

In this unit, we started off by talking about why we classify things. We learned about the dichotomous key and did a number of activities to understand how they work. We talked about why classification is useful and how we can do that in a way that is organized and logical.

Scientific Classification- Dichotomous Key ActivitiesThen we went into more detail about the history of classification.  Scientists have been grouping and categorizing different species for most of human history. In the past 300 years or so, scientists have worked on developing a logical, organized system for classifying the species around us.

Animal Classification CardsAll living organisms are classified by their characteristics. We keep adding to and adjusting the classification system as new evidence become available through DNA research and molecular studies! We talked about Linnaeus and his contributions to the classification of animals and his system of naming organisms (binomial nomenclature).

History Scientific Classification - Linnaeus Notebook PagesWe talked about the current system of classification and by the end of the unit, the kids were readily able to identify the types of organisms that have been classified as Bryozoa, Platyhelminthes, Porifora and other phyla in the Animalia Kingdom.

Taxonomy-Scientific Classification-ActivitiesWe did a number of hands-on activities studying and observing various species and even did some simple dissections at the end of the unit.

Biology: Ocean Unit

Ocean Unit:

This unit is a study of the hydrosphere — Earth’s oceans, tides, marine life (including bioluminescent critters, and more!)

Ocean Unit - Marine Habitats Coral Reefs Tide Pools Tides Currents Ocean Zones Bioluminescence Worksheets and more

In our ocean studies we explored

  • Marine Habitats
  • Coral Reefs
  • Tide Pools
  • Water Form Words (bay, estuary, lagoon, fjord, etc.)
  • Features of the Ocean Floor (trench, seamount, guyot, etc.)
  • Ocean Navigation (early navigation with astrolabes & the constellations, modern SONAR)
  • Salinity
  • Tides (and the phases of the moon)
  • Ocean Currents (Surface & Deep Sea Currents)
  • Ocean Life:
    • Special Body Features
    • Fish Body Shape and Movement
    • Biological Interactions: Mutualism and Commensalism in the Ocean
    • Deep Sea Life – Bioluminescence, Anglerfish

We also talked about the ocean zones and different layers of the ocean again (which we covered three or four years ago).
