Plants – Senior Infants to First Class

Hi, here are some resources I’ve gathered for teaching this lesson.

I hope it saves some teachers time searching for the same things.

I have gotten some PowerPoints for TES.co.uk  and some games from topmarks.co.uk and put them all together in one place.

  1. I will begin with a KWL

4.  Activities based round the character Sparky the Alien on growing plants. Children can compare vegetables and fruits, label the parts of a tree, spell the parts of a plant and put life cycle pictures in order.
