Spark discussion related to reproductive strategies with this animal behaviors and plant structures for reproduction resource, designed to closely align to NGSS standard MS-LS1-4.
With this activity, students will look at several examples of reproductive adaptations in plants and animals. Students are asked to think critically about how different strategies used by species are beneficial to the survival of both the individual, the offspring, and the species.
This resource comes with 2 versions: A worksheet version and a task card version.
Purchase includes a printable PDF file in color with answer key. On page 2 of this resource you will find a link to a student friendly Google Slides version of this file. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.

MS-LS1-4 Use argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures affect the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants respectively. Examples of behaviors that affect the probability of animal reproduction could include nest building to protect young from cold, herding of animals to protect young from predators, and vocalization of animals and colorful plumage to attract mates for breeding. Examples of animal behaviors that affect the probability of plant reproduction could include transferring pollen or seeds, and creating conditions for seed germination and growth. Examples of plant structures could include bright flowers attracting butterflies that transfer pollen, flower nectar and odors that attract insects that transfer pollen, and hard shells on nuts that squirrels bury.
