Classifying Objects Using Properties- 2n

NGSS Lesson  |  PE: 2-PS1-1

Students will understand that all five senses can be used to make observations and will practice using multiple senses in an observation activity. Students will learn that different objects have similar properties that can be used for classification.

South Coast Cactus_Page_01.png

NGSS Lesson  |  PE: 3-LS4-3

Using South Coast Botanic Garden’s Cactus Garden as a point of reference, students will gain an introductory understanding of the desert habitat and succulent adaptations. Students will construct an argument using evidence that some plants are adapted better for desert habitats than others.

Using the greenhouse at South Coast Botanic Garden in Palos Verdes as a point of reference, students will gain an introductory understanding of the difference between weather and climate and how these influence rain forests.
