In this lesson, students learn about the four stages of the life cycle of a plant. They will learn that plants are living things that grow just like humans do. They will be able to describe germination, flowering, and how a plant releases seeds.



Learning Objective

Students will be able to describe the four stages of a plant’s life cycle.


Students begin by thinking about the life cycle of a human. They will drag images to the correct stages to demonstrate their understanding from a baby to old age. Explain that plants, like humans, go through different life stages.


Introduce the four life stages of a plant. First, the seed germinates. In order to germinate, plants need air, water, and sunlight. When the plant begins to grow, it grows towards the sunlight and into a seedling. Then the plant flowers or grows fruits and finally releases seeds so that the plant can grow again. Have students draw a line to match the description to the stage of the life cycle. Then students will drag images to the correct stage of the cycle. Next, students match the images to the descriptions. Finally, they will fill in the blanks by dragging the correct words.


Check student understanding with ten questions consisting of true or false, multiple-choice, and fill-ins. They will be asked to identify and describe each stage they learned about.


To conclude, students will spin the wheel and identify and explain the stage they land on.
