Lesson 6 Part 4- Field Guide: Structures and Functions

This is Part 4 in our 4-part series in which students create four mini field guides. Each field guide focuses on one NGSS Cross-Cutting Concept. In this lesson, students focus on STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION. Students study the unique structures of their subjects, then use inference to determine the functions of those structures. Again, we focus on page planning and presentation. As with previous lessons, the REFLECTION writing component includes NGSS Cross-Cutting-Concept questions and instruction on answering them in Question/Answer Form and creating a coherent scientific paragraph.
