Title: Gymnosperms, Cone Bearing Vascular Plants
Description: Students will research printed encyclopedias, Internet resources (thinkfinity.org) and their science textbook to gather information to answer questions and draw an assigned portion of the Life Cycle of the Gymnosperms. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.


Subject: Science (9 - 12), or Technology Education (9 - 12)
Title: The Life Cycle of Ferns, A Seedless Vascular Plant
Description: Students will listen, watch, and read while the teacher goes over the life cycle of the ferns. Students will then use the textbook or Internet websites to draw, label, decorate, or color the life cycle of ferns. Students will also use various resources to answer questions about ferns. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.


Subject: Science (9 - 12), or Technology Education (9 - 12)
