Establish Set/Motivation/Introduction:

    Today we are going to learn about parts of plants, then guess what? You get to make your own flower!

Procedure:

  1. After students are seated in the carpet, tell them the objective today is to learn the four main parts of a plant.
  2. What is something you know about plants?
    Write down their different responses on the white board, giving them time to brainstorm.
    Okay, good answers. Now I am going to read a book called “Watch Seeds Grow.”
  3. Tell the kids one fact about each part of the plant as you read the book.
  4. After reading the book, talk about it.
  5. Now you are going to make your own flowering plant.
  6. Grab a set of materials and show the kids the parts and ask them:
    What part am I holding in my hand? A stem! Good job!
  7. Then demonstrate the process of how to make a flower.
  8. Label the four parts (flower, stem, leaf, roots), then glue them together.
  9. Please do NOT glue the labels until I come and check you.
    Walk around to help kids.
  10. Release students by tables to go sit down.
