Grow a Plant ActivityGrow a Plant

Learn about gardens and grow your own plants at the same time. Use this fun lesson plan to teach garden science for kids.

Your students will enjoy learning about different types of plants as well as how to look after their own when they have finished making them.

 

Introduction:

  • Talk to the students about the type of flowers and plants they might see in the spring and summer time. Let the kids know that today they will be making plants for their very own summer garden to take home and look after.

  • What kind of things will our garden plants need to survive? Sunlight, nutrients, water etc

 

Activity:

  • In your classroom set up a range of different plants (the type will depend on your location, budget and the season).

  • Let the children fill a container with dirt before moving around the class making sure the students have done this part of the activity correctly. After adding seeds, let the children know that they must make sure they label all their plants so they remember which is which.

  • For further activities you can let the students decorate their containers or name their plants.

 

After finishing:

After finishing the activity, bring the children back together and explain how they can look after their plants when they take them back home.

  • Separate the plants into pots with holes in them.
  • Put the plants in a sunny place and remember to water them every two or three days.
  • When the plant is healthy and strong you can plant it in your garden.
