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.
Young scholars read The Garden by Arnold Lobel, plant seeds to discover what makes them grow, and record their observations in their journals.
Learners observe the growing stages of plants. In this plant growth lesson, students collect, germinate, and plant seeds to chart the growth process of plants.
Students observe the life cycle of a plant in a glove.  In this life cycle lesson, students read and discuss the life cycle of a plant.  Students then plant seeds in a clear plastic glove and record their observations. 
Students fill in their notebooks comparing different kinds of soils. For this soils lesson plan, students study different soils under a microscope and plant seeds in different soils to compare them.

Students explore botany by participating in a calendar class activity. In this plant observation activity, students examine a diagram of a Brassica plant and identify its anatomy before planting their own seeds and viewing the changes over the course of several weeks. Students utilize worksheets to record their observations and define a list of botany related vocabulary terms.

Students create art projects such as picture frames and plant a seed to observe over several weeks.
Students complete a unit of lessons on growing plants. They plant seeds in various ways, make predictions, develop a plant journal, evaluate and analyze the growth of the seeds, label the parts of a seed, and identify the edible plant parts.
Third graders plant seeds. In this seed structure lesson, 3rd graders identify parts of a seed and plant a lima bean seed.  Students discuss and reflect on the process in their journals. 
Learners grow flowers from seeds. They plant quick-growing seeds in a flower pot and consider what a seed needs to grow. They observe and record the growth of the planted seeds in science journals.

3rd - 5th
Students explore the parts of a plant and seed. They plant seeds and observe the growth of plants. Students record the observations. They discuss and share the observations they see.
Students plant seeds and watch their plants grow in the classroom while learning about the process.
Third graders conduct an experiment comparing plants.  In this plant lesson plan, 3rd graders plant seeds and grow two varieties of plant comparing the light needed for it to grow.  Students make predictions and record their observations. Students complete prediction, observation and conclusion worksheets.
Students explain that events in nature follow an orderly progression when they plant seeds and observe the development of the seeds. They count seeds and find the likenesses and the differences of many seeds.
Students plant seeds in milk cartons, over the next two weeks, they watch the plants closely to see how they grow and change. They keep a photo journal to record the growth of the plant.
