The guiding question of this investigation is, How are the life cycles of living things similar and how are they different? The purpose is to give students an opportunity to use the disciplinary core idea growth and development of organisms and the crosscutting concept of patterns to figure out the similarities and differences in the life cycles of several different organisms. Students will also learn about the types of questions scientists investigate during the reflective discussion. The Teacher Notes provide connections to the standards, a timeline, safety notes, information on materials and preparation, and step-by-step instructions for facilitating the lesson and assessing student outcomes. After the Teacher Notes, you will find classroom-ready reproducible pages in the form of an Investigation Handout and Checkout Questions. Before you begin the lesson, we recommend reading Chapters 1 and 2, which are in this book selection. Chapter 1 provides an overview of Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) with an explanation of what happens during each of the eight stages of ADI, which are the same for every ADI investigation. Chapter 2 focuses on the investigations and how to use them, not to replace an existing science curriculum, but rather to function as a tool that teachers can use to integrate three-dimensional instruction into their existing curriculum. Also included in the book selection are the Table of Contents, Preface, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, Introduction, and Index.
