We used a simple sheet that I made, you can download it FREE here: Plant samples PDF
We love gardening , both the kids really like planting and growing things. We have been harvesting our own seeds to replant and the kids wondered why the seeds are either inside the flower or in the fruit. So today I thought they might like to learn a little more about the parts of a plant and what they do.
The first step was to collect 4 samples of different parts of plants. The sample pieces could be: flower, fruit, leaves, seed, stalk or roots.
Once they had collected the samples they needed to draw or glue (or both) each sample onto the work sheet.
Then we did a little research samples and what it does to keep the plant alive and healthy and went on to discuss why each part of the plant is important and how the parts interact with one another. If you are looking for more information about the parts of a plant have a look at our FREE Printable HERE
Sage did some colouring in and William did a little worksheet to see if he could recall what he had learned.
I also used a couple of other free downloads from Teachers pay teachers which is free to join and has lots of free and cheap resourses. The Freebies used were:
