Curb spring fever by bringing some of the great outdoors into your classroom with plant life cycle activities.
Students study and observe plant life cycles. In this life cycle lesson, students watch a PowerPoint with the different stages of life for a plant. Students complete learning stations to study the stages in detail. Students watch video about the plant life stages and complete a quiz. Students finish with a test that uses images of the life cycle stages.
Practice defining words that have to do with plant life cycles.  The list included here is mainly for structural units, but could be used to review their relevance and the process of the life cycle.
Fourth graders complete various activities related to the plant life cycle. They read the book "The Tiny Seed," read and discuss the poem "Five Little Seeds," complete a "Plantenstein Mystery" and other online activities, write and illustrate a plant life cycle comic strip, take a field trip to a wildlife refuge, and dissect beans and seeds.
Research plant life cycles using a variety of materials. Researchers will visit four stations set up with books, digitized version of books, and software offering text-to-speech support. They will then answer two plant life cycle questions posted on the board and write their responses on Post-it notes. Finally, they mark evidence in the text to support their answers, and then gather as a group to share.
Perhaps you don't use plant-related apps in the classroom because you haven't botany (bought any)! Here is one that you may want to purchase. Elementary green thumbs explore the stages in the plant life cycle as well as some of the processes that allow them to proceed. 
Fourth graders explore the plant life cycle. They discuss the sequence of events in the life cycle of the plant and illustrate how the life cycle never ends. Students explore the importance of water, sunlight, and nutrients during the life cycle of the plant.
Young scientists view videos to watch the changes through the life cycle of a plant. Then they will germinate seeds on a sock and in a plastic bag. Finally, they answer questions about the sequence of plant growth and record changes in local plants and make an original garden.
In these plant life worksheets, students complete a worksheet about parts of a plant, plant life, plant life cycle sequence, and then complete a plant life mini book.
Students engage in creating seed packets to sell to raise money for a charitable organization. In this early childhood lesson plan, students discover the order of the plant life cycle. Students also design their own seed packets and labels, which are then sold to raise money for a charitable organization.
Fourth graders investigate plant life cycles by cultivating a variety of plants and making observations over several weeks. The also use picture cards to model several plant life cycles, including germination, maturity, reproduction and death.
Students work together to observe plants and flowers through their life cycle. In groups, they make predictions and record changes in a journal. Using this information, they create their own original artwork and discuss the plants life cycle.
Students study plant life and their life cycles. In this plant life lesson, students complete a KWL chart about plant life knowledge. Students then plant a seed, care for it, and observe the plant for a week. Students draw pictures of the plant and its observations. Students write the definitions of related terms and draw a diagram of the plants as well as its parts. Students will take an oral quiz about the lesson.
Before you fill those pots with dirt and plant those seeds, describe the plant life cycle. Seed dispersal, germination, and pollination are all covered in this text-rich presentation. Each slide does contain quite a bit of text and academic vocabulary, but in an easy-to-understand story format that younger kids will enjoy.
Instructing blind or visually impaired learners means you need to make symbolic tactile representations of various processes to provide as much input as possible. But wouldn't it be even better to have your learners make the models instead? They create a three-dimensional model of the plant life cycle using symbolic tactile representations that show the changes from seed to plant and back again. This is a great lesson that can be used in a general or special educational setting.
Call this just a template for a presentation on plant life, not life cycles as the title implies. Content does compare the lengths of different life cycles and describes required conditions for germination, but it also explores cellular respiration processes and essential nutrients. You will not find any information on plant growth or reproduction, nor will you find any photos or diagrams to enhance understanding.
Students plant seeds, observe and tend plants. They identify major plant parts, how to germinate and troubleshoot problems with plants; and, that plants need water, light, and soil nutrients to thrive. They create a Plant Growth Data Log.
In this exploring the processes from seed to reproduction of a plant online interactive instructional activity, students read a passage explaining the plant life cycle and answer multiple choice questions about what they read. Students choose 8 answers.
In this plant life cycle worksheet, students draw pictures for each life stage of a plant where the descriptions are given. Students complete 9 stages.
In this plant life cycle worksheet, students will complete this graphic organizer by writing in the 3 steps in a plant life cycle.
