Each worksheet offers a different lesson for your children. Make sure they have the following supplies before getting started:
- Printer. (This is the one I have)
- Pencil. Supply each child with a pencil to use when labeling parts of the plant, drawing their plant, and completing other aspects of each worksheet.
- Eraser. Have an eraser available for the children to use if they make a mistake on a worksheet.
- Crayons or Colored Pencils. Have the children use crayons or colored pencils to color the images of plants on each printed sheet.
When you have the worksheets printed and supplies for each child, you can get started. It is best to work on one printable sheet at a time. You can begin the lesson by asking your children, “Do plants need oxygen?” Let each child provide an answer of their own. Even if they are wrong, you can correct them and show them why the plant needs oxygen using the worksheet as a reference.
After asking if plants need oxygen to survive, you can read a book about a plant’s parts to them. Once you read the book, ask them to point at each part of the plant and write it down using a pencil. If they have all the answers correct, have the children color the plant on their page. Let them get creative by using as many different colors as they want to create a unique plant. Allow the children to draw a plant on the “My Plant” worksheet using a pencil. You may then have them color it in when they finish drawing it.
Get Your Kids Interested in All Kinds of Plants
Using the free printable and worksheet pages, you will help your kids discover what it takes to grow a plant of their own. It may encourage them to want to go out and pick seeds to plant in your backyard or garden. If they have a sudden interest in plants and gardening, this is a good thing. You can go from completing the printables with your kids to helping them select seeds to start planting. If you do want to plant seeds with the kids, choose options that thrive in your area, get the right soil, and follow the proper process to get the plants to grow.
