Long jump motion

* This lesson provides a link between the Living Organisms and Movement Battle Creek Area Math and Science Center units.

Students explore the different ways animals move and name body parts used for locomotion.  They also explore plant movement (seed dispersal) and discuss the fact that plants need help moving (being pushed by wind or water) whereas animals can move themselves.

At the conclusion of the lesson, students will be able to:

  • Identify body parts commonly used for animal movement
  • Recognize that plants move when they are seeds
  • Discuss reasons why plants and animals might want to move
