The Plant Life Cycle
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.

Lesson Plan: Plant Life Cycles
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.

The Three Life-Giving Sisters: Plant Cultivation and Mohican Innovation
Children gain first-hand experience with Native American agriculture while investigating the life cycle of plants with this engaging experiment. Focusing on what the natives called the Three Sisters - corn, beans, and squash - young scientists germinate and grow seeds in order to learn about plant life and understand why the Mohicans chose to grow these plants alongside one another.

What happens at the end of a plant's life cycle? Show kids the natural way that plants show that they're decomposing, as well as the importance of compost, with a lesson about living organisms. After reading Log Cabin by Anne Schreiber, they work on a coloring worksheet and identify the organisms mentioned in the book.
Study Jams! Gymnosperms: Seeds in Cones
Two very hip teenagers walk through the forest collecting evergreen cones. One teaches the other about gymnosperms: cycads, ginkoes, gnetophytes, and conifers. He tries to convince his friend how amazing cones are, while she defends flowers for being pretty.

"Five Little Seeds"
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.
Plant Life Cycle
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.
1st - 3rd Science
What does a seed need to grow into a plant? What is inside a seed? In a fun and engaging lesson, young scientists learn all about what it takes for a seed to become a plant as they listen to a story, examine the inside of a germinated seed, watch their own seeds sprout, and draw the steps of a seed's growth.

Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Human Body Systems and Plants
Fifteen multiple choice questions review a variety of biology topics. In game-show fashion, viewers answer questions about a plant's needs, the skeletal system, and the cardiovascular system. If you happen to teach these three topics around the same time, this PowerPoint can serve as a useful tool in preparing your young scientists for a test.
5th - 7th Science
Plant Life Cycles
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.
