Friends arrive at the farm and aspiring agronomists help the farmer to grow what the friends want. With adorable animation and charming background music, little ones practice virtual gardening and farming while developing cognitive abilities.
In this plant science worksheet, students color and label the different parts of the flower. They write short answers to 14 questions about flowers.
Students define fruits and vegetables, differentiate between the two, and identify and sample fifteen to twenty common fruits and vegetables.
After studying the plant or flower life cycle, have the class create a basket of flowers out of clay. They hone their ceramics skills while they push, pull, then paint clay to look like flowers they've seen in nature. There are several interesting links included.
Asexual reproduction in plants occurs from bulbs, perennating organs, or even gardening techniques like cuttings. Commercial growers rely on the ability of some plants to reproduce asexually and grow roots rather than starting from seeds. This quick explanation gives a great overview for your beginning biologists.
Students learn the parts and functions of a flowering plant. In this flowering plant lesson plan, students learn the functions of each part, the use of pollination, and what it means for plants to survive.
Students study the process of plant reproduction and the biotic and abiotic factors that affect flowering phenology. In this plant reproduction lesson, students describe the interaction of environmental factors as it relates to the growth of plants. Students complete worksheet and present a written report to the class.
Youngsters use a paper bee to pollinate two paper flowers. They use hole-punch dots as pollen. Older learners dissect flowers and name the structures involved in pollination. The handouts mentioned in the lesson plan are not included, so you will need for your class to draw their own bee and flowers. The modeling activity in this will bring the concept of pollination to life.
Students explore the life cycle of a plant.  In this cross curriculum pumpkin science and literacy lesson, students listen to the book Pumpkin, Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington and identify the stages in the life cycle of a pumpkin.  Students cut out and read sentence strips describing these stages and glue them in order on a pumpkin worksheet provided.
In this flower structure activity, students read the information on flower structure and reproduction. Students answer questions based on the reading provided.
Students investigate plant reproduction, pollen collection and identification. They collect pollen samples over a twenty four hour period and examine them under a microscope.
In this instructional activity, Pumpkins-Life Cycle of a Plant, students study the life cycle of a pumpkin. Students will analyze the pumpkin and how it goes from seed to pumpkin over a three days of activities. Students sing a song teaching them about the life cycle of the pumpkin. Students read the story Pumpkin, Pumpkin. Students even get to taste baked pumpkin seeds!
Second graders examine the life cycle of plants and animals. In this life cycle lesson plan, 2nd graders watch a PowerPoint presentation and students discuss the characteristics of camels, crickets and fleas. Students review facts about animal lives and compare and contrast the facts about the new animals they have studied.
Challenge your class with a lesson on the life cycle of a plant! Learners use microscopes to observe the insides of various plants, write a story about the life cycle of a plant, and compare and contrast watermelon and corn seeds.
Writing is vital to all subjects. Students use a three-step writing process to communicate a scientific concept. After researching a particular plant students will use the writing process of planning, writing, and publishing to compose a paragraph describing their plant's specific life cycle. All materials needed for this instructional activity are included. A very well thought-out instructional activity.
Explore air pollution and man-made emissions with young environmental advocates as they examine images and discuss the issues. Use brief points (listed here) to explain a few main concepts such as effects of smog, sources of pollution, the ozone layer, and the oxygen cycle. There are a few linked images you can display to engage visual learners during this discussion. They can see these factors at play through an interactive online simulation which has them adjust different variables (population, emissions, weather, etc.) to see the effect on a hypothetical city. The Auntie Litter video link gives several options; check out the "Life is a Breath of Fresh Air" song and consider teaching it to your youngsters!
Written to examine seeds that grow in Kansas, you can adapt this lesson to anywhere you live. Learners sort a mixture of five different seeds to by any characteristic of their choice. When your budding scientists are exploring the life cycle of a plant, you can use this classifying activity to introduce seeds. Another way to use this lesson is for demonstrating biodiversity.
Here is an all-encompassing overview of the plant kingdom! In this worksheet, beginning botanists describe characteristics of the four different plant phyla, explain various life cycles, differentiate between monocots and dicots, and more. Use this as a note-taking guide or unit review for your AP biology or college-level botany course. Follow it with laboratory comparisons of these different types of plants. 
What do seeds need in order to grow into plants? This presentation follows what happened every four days during a seed growth and observation study. Images compare how well two sets of seeds did under specific circumstances. Use this to inform your class or as an idea for a lesson you can do on your own.
Appropriately green slides introduce viewers to kingdom Plantae. Most of the 54 slides provide new information and a photo or diagram. Unfortunately, photo quality is substandard. The information content is suitable for supporting an entire introductory plant unit as it covers a vast range of subtopics: plant needs, alternation of generations, classification, stem types, seed types, life cycle, and major plant structures. If you can invest some time for updating the photos, you might find this a helpful resource.
