Parts of a Plant Lesson Introduction
Read aloud from the Parts of a Plant Worksheet. Older students can read directly from the worksheet lesson.  Have students discuss:

What are the three types of plants?
What are the parts of a plant?

Ask your students about the lesson they have just read. Use the following questions as a guide:

 

What is the plant cycle?
What are the differences between the three types of plants??

 

Have students answer the questions after completing the reading on the parts of a plant. Once everyone has answered the questions have students exchange papers and grade them. Go over each answer and encourage students to ask questions.

Some questions may have a similar answer so make sure to emphasize this allowing every child to give the answer they believe is correct.

Body
Once students have completed the Parts of a Plant worksheet pass out pre-cut, rectangle cardboard pieces, green leaves that have been gathered prior to class, five brown pipe cleaners per student, and construction paper. Students will need the following art supplies: pencils, green markers, glue, and scissors.

The cardboard rectangle pieces should emulate the appearance of a plant stem. The green markers can be used to color the cardboard green. Have students be creative as they create their own plant. They can use the pipe cleaners as the tree roots, cut flowers out of construction paper, and glue leaves onto the stem. Each student should design something different. However, by putting each part of the plant together themselves they will be able to remember each part easily.

 

Closure
Have a discussion on the identification of the various parts of a plant. Ask the students to describe the importance of each part and what would happen to a plant that is missing a specific part. Pass out flowers you've picked or purchased and discuss how the flower will die without its roots now that it has been picked/purchased.
