Lesson Plan: Asexual Reproduction in Plants Science
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to describe asexual reproduction in plants and outline methods of natural and artificial vegetative propagation.
Students will be able to
- recall that asexual reproduction is carried out by single organisms,
- recall that plants can use natural vegetative propagation methods such as the production of rhizomes, offshoots, bulbs, and tubers,
- describe the formation of tubers as a method of natural vegetative propagation in plants,
- describe grafting by wedges and attachment, taking cuttings, and tissue culture as methods of artificial vegetative propagation in plants.
Students should already be familiar with
- the concept that organisms can reproduce sexually or asexually.
