Our How Do Plants Grow? lesson plan tackles the question “How do seeds turn into plants?”. This hands-on lesson demonstrates how a plant grows and identifies the basic needs of plants and develops critical thinking as students understand the impact of the environment on the vitality of plant life. During this lesson, students are asked to grow their own seeds using specific instruction and record their observations daily to see the progress of growth and use their new knowledge of plants and how they grow to make informed observations. Students are also asked to use a word bank of lesson vocabulary to fill in the blanks of a given paragraph.
At the end of this lesson, students will be able to explain how a plant grows and identify the basic needs of plants.
