Use this life cycle of a plant worksheet as a review for your preschoolers. It’s the perfect addition to your life cycle activities for preschool.
The plant life cycle is a fascinating process. Each step of the life cycle is important for the healthy growth and development of the plant.
This worksheet will help your young students take a closer look at the life cycle of a plant.
It can be difficult to teach sequencing to young students, but with the right tools and strategies, it can be a fun and engaging learning experience.
Adding this sequencing worksheet to your science plans is a great way to have preschoolers and kindergarteners review how plants grow.
Plant Life Cycle
Teaching the life cycle of living things is an important part of any preschool and/or kindergarten science program.
Life cycles are a great way to help students learn about the world around them. By understanding how living things grow and change, they can better understand the process of life.
Preparing the Worksheet
This one-page printable requires no advanced preparation. Just print and go! If your kids don’t enjoy coloring, you can print this activity on colored printer paper or print the color copy.
You can also make this a reusable activity by printing it on cardstock and laminating it for durability. Cut out the sequencing cards at the bottom of the page.
Add a velcro dot to the backside of each sequencing card and in each empty box on the worksheet. Then, the kids can sequence the life cycle of a plant over and over again.
WHAT SKILLS ARE COVERED?
I love when one simple activity covers so many skills! This plant cycle worksheet does just that! But, what skills does it actually cover?
• Science: Children will learn how plants grow from seed to plant. They’ll learn new vocabulary words associated with how plants grow – seed, leaf, stem, sprout, roots, etc.
• Logic: Sequencing the order of events is a great logic-building activity. This skill helps young children begin to make sense of the world around them.
• Motor Skills: Cutting with scissors helps preschoolers and kindergarteners strengthen the small muscles in their fingers, hands, and wrists.
• Hand-Eye Coordination: Gluing the sequencing cards in order (or lining them up with the velcro dots) helps strengthen hand-eye coordination. Kids will have to align the sequencing cards on the mat straight so that they all fit properly.
