Fourth graders complete various activities related to the plant life cycle.

Students record evidence of garden components, inputs, and outputs. In this plant life cycle and community garden lesson, students construct a graphic organizer with a circle representing the garden and various colored post it notes representing input (what the neighborhood gives the garden) and output (what the garden produces). Students add to and revise their "puzzle" throughout the year.
Fourth graders plant bulbs to study the effects of soil formation. In this plant life cycle lesson, 4th graders study the parts of bulb and plant the bulb to observe its life cycle. Students read background information and learn terms associated with the life stages of a bulb.
How do seeds get from a plant to the ground so they can germinate? This presentation provides the answer to seed dispersal in relation to plant reproduction. Straightforward explanations and definitions for wind, animal, burial, fruit, and spinning dispersal make this a comprehensive resource.
Third graders access prior knowledge of plants and make a hypothesis based on the bean seed. In this plant life cycle lesson, 3rd graders recognize the important parts of the plant and sort vocabulary words for inside and outside structures. Students create KWL and observe a bean seed.
