Explore water transport in plant stems using this fun experiment! Your scientists will start by reading Stems by Vijaya Bodach. Then, activate prior knowledge about plant stem functions and water transportation. Demonstrate this concept through an experiment with food coloring. Submerge various items (some are listed) in jars with colored water. Make predictions, observe what happened the next day, and analyze the data!
Learners work together to discover the path water follows in plants. They create multicolored flowers. They label each part of the plant and note their function.
Second graders investigate how the stem of the plant carries water and minerals upwards from the roots to other parts of the plant. They observe what happens after a flower is placed in dyed water. They word process their observations about plant stems.
In this biology worksheet, students grow corn plants in growth pouches as the control group in an experiment on plant growth in microgravity. Then they analyze any differences that occur between Earth-grown and space-grown corn plants.
Learners examine the concept of transpiration. They work together to complete an experiment in which they see water loss in plants. They record their observations and discuss their conclusions.
In this plant kingdom worksheet, students answer 32 questions about the structures of plants including the xylem, phloem and types of plants. Students compare angiosperms to gymnosperms.
Even pirates know not to steal stuff you can make yourself! Read The Pirate's Parrot Stole the King's Carrot to engage your class. Then, plant carrots with your class. If this isn't possible with your kiddos, consider cutting out paper pots and seeds and having them plant a seed on paper. 
First graders observe and describe plants as they grow from seeds.
First graders describe plants as they grow them from seed. Working in small groups, they germinate a lima bean into a sprout. Teams record periodic observations in their science journals of their seed's growth and development.
Students identify parts of a plant. In this life science lesson, student groups locate the leaves and fruits on vegetables, then find the roots. Lesson includes extension activities and background teacher information.
How do different minerals affect the growth of plants? Budding botanists find out in a multi-week experiment that has them using solutions with specific mineral deficiencies. While there is a lot of preparation for the investigation, learners will come away with a solid understanding of the importance of a variety of minerals in organism growth. The procedure is clear and straightforward, but you may want to add more analysis questions or do a full lab write up, as there are only four questions on the worksheet. 
Students investigate the basic parts of plant and that plants are living things which require water, air, light and nutrients for survival. They do this through a series of scientific experiements and multi-curricular hands-on activities.
Learners identify plant's roots, stems, leaves, flowers, describe functions of different parts of a plant, discuss basic needs plants have, identify chlorophyll, and analyze a variety of foods to determine what part of a plant they are.
Students conduct various experiments to investigate plant transpiration. In this biology lesson, students explain how this process helps maintain the hydrologic cycle. They measure the rate of water loss in plants using a potometer.
Students examine the part that transpiration plays in the hydrologic cycle. They observe how plants play a role in maintaining a stable environment.
The hunt is on! Provide young botanists with a list of eighteen plant-related questions and let them loose as they search for answers on corresponding fact cards. Perform this activity in the classroom or use it as an opportunity to take the kids outside. A fun introduction to a unit on plant life that provides facts about photosynthesis, the different parts of plants, and the plant life cycle. Also a great activity to include as part of an Earth Day celebration.
Now here is a really helpful lesson that incorporates plant parts and the all-so-important identification of poison ivy. First graders examine all the parts common to plants; stems, roots, leaves, and flowers. They then turn their attention to one plant with a poisonous touch. They read a very cute story about a pig who outsmarted a wolf using poison ivy, look at several pictures of the ivy in various environments, and then discuss why poison ivy makes you itch. The lesson culminates with a summative assessment where the class draws, writes, and labels mini-posters warning others about the poisonous plant.
Seventh graders observe and discuss as a class the different types of vascular plants. They examine the different parts of the plant and some of the processes occurring in plants with activities accompanying.
Students discover plant chemical processes through three lab activities. Overheads, data sheets, and teaching procedures provided for the unit covering photosynthesis, respiration, and transpiration.
Students examine ecosystems and the variety of plants and animals that can be found in them.  In this plant identification lesson students identify the basic parts of a plant and categorize them according to their characteristics.
