Seed to Plant Coloring & Worksheet


Spring is a fantastic time to learn about the life cycle of a plant!

I highly recommend that you take children out into the garden, plant some seeds and track the results!  There is great satisfaction in cultivating and tending a garden and it will keep their little hands and hearts busy for hours.  Some easy and quick growing plants: Sunflowers, Nasturtium, Peas, Green Beans, Marigolds, Tomatos.

We’ve even taken small lima beans and “planted” them in the classroom.  Take a wet paper towel and crumple it into a plastic bag.  Place a bean down the side of the bag so that it’s able to absorb the water from the towel, but so you can also see it as it grow.  Close the bag and tape it up on the window.  In a few days your children will be able to observe germination, the first roots, and the sprouting seedling.  It’s a wonderful way to get hands on in the classroom.

Lima beans are perfect for dissecting, and allow children an inside look at the anatomy of a seed.  Simply soak the seed for about an hour in some warm water and then provide children with small tweezers and things to inspect.  You can usually pop the seeds open with your fingernails and once open children can find the first leaves, the food and the root.


Seed to Plant Sequencing Cards

Plant Life Cycle Sequencing Cards

These plant life cycle cards show progression from seed to seedling.  Children order the different stages of the seed as roots form and  the seedling emerges. We recommend leaving one set intact and cutting the additional set out for playing  pieces.

    Thank you very much for this. Praise the Lord it was great timing as only last Monday I planted some seeds with my 6yo son and he has continued to be interested in their progress, particularly some climbing beans which are growing quickly :) Thanks again
