Plant Theme Lesson Plans and Activities

Recommended Book
The book that I would recommend to be the most valuable to use in conjunction with the Plant Theme would be "The Tiny Seed" by Eric Carle. His books have a remarkable way of telling a story that children love to hear and his ability to integrate learning concepts is outstanding. This story tells how a tiny seed traveled and escaped landing in an area where it couldn't grow. This book introduces the concept of how a seed requires certain growing conditions before becoming a plant and it does this in a fun and entertaining manner. Click on the title to read reviews.

Follow-up Craft Activity
Children can trace their foot on brown construction paper and cut it out. Facial features can be added to represent the tiny seed. The story could be acted out.
