Plant Life Cycle Activities and Lesson Plans
Curb spring fever by bringing some of the great outdoors into your classroom with plant life cycle activities.
Plant Life Cycle
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.
Plant Life Cycles
Young scholars study and observe plant life cycles. In this life cycle lesson, students watch a PowerPoint with the different stages of life for a plant. Young scholars complete learning stations to study the stages in detail. Students watch video about the plant life stages and complete a quiz. Young scholars finish with a test that uses images of the life cycle stages.
Life Science: Plant Life Cycles
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.
Creating a 3-D Model of a Plant Life
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.
"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.
Review of Plants
In this plant science worksheet, students complete 45 multiple choice questions on plant reproduction and different plants of a plant.
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. Finally, they mark evidence in the text to support their answers, and then gather as a group to share.
Plant Life Cycles
Follow the life cycle of a dandelion with a lab sheet for kindergartners. They learn about the order of events in a dandelion's life, then put the stages of life in order. Can they describe the life cycle of a pumpkin? For extra practice, have kids perform a skit that describes how plants grow from seeds.
From Seed to Shining Seed
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.
Growth and Change as it Occurs in Plants and Flowers
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.
Plant Life Cycle
In this exploring the processes from seed to reproduction of a plant online interactive worksheet, students read a passage explaining the plant life cycle and answer multiple choice questions about what they read. Students choose 8 answers.
Science Test-Plant Life Cycle
For this Life Science worksheet, 8th graders match the vocabulary with the list while being tested on terms related to plant reproduction.
Educational apps reviews are available to members
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.
How Do Plant Life Cycles Vary?
In this plant life cycle worksheet, students will complete this graphic organizer by writing in the 3 steps in a plant life cycle.
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 Life Cycle of a Seed: Point of View
A cross-curricular expository writing lesson has third and fourth graders listen to and discuss the book The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss. They write a journal entry from the perspective of a carrot seed. Pupils use the writing process to create a book explaining the life cycle of a plant of their choice. Emphasis on transition words and sequencing are part of the lesson. This is a great way to introduce primary and secondary sources, too! For fourth graders, choose a more sophisticated plant life cycle book.
Creating a 3-D Model of a Plant Life Cycle
Designed for visually impaired learners, the 3-D plant germination model found here could be done as a whole class as explained in the activity, or each child could create his/her own model on a paper plate, depending on the ability or age of your young botanists. Whether your kids are tactile or visual learners, making a model with real beans is an interesting and fun way to demonstrate the process.
Flowers Seeking Pollinators
Why are flowers so darn pretty? Well, as your class will find out, it has a little something to do with pollination and plant reproduction. The class discusses all the things that make flowers attractive and how those attractive features lure birds, bats, animals, and insects to help them pollinate other plants or disperse their seeds. They complete a plant diagram and then make flowers of their own that have specific traits tailored to attracting specific types of pollinators. It is a great lesson with background information for you and a project for your kids!
Finding, Gathering, Saving Seeds
Students understand the importance of saving seeds. In this saving seeds lesson, students dry out seeds for later use planting. Students recognize that one plant may have many seeds.
