Warmer weather is here and we are excited! I think kids should be outside often when possible, and the sunshine certainly makes it more enjoyable to head outdoors. Being hands-on, exploring, and learning about plant parts and what they need to survive are great ways for kids to experience the world around them. We are diving into our unit on plants and their life cycles with this free Parts of a Plant Labeling Activity!

Parts of a Plant Labeling Activity

Gardening with kids is a wonderful learning experience! When I can, I love to bring gardening into the classroom by growing real plants with my students. (We used to use a Miracle-Gro Gro-ables Kit, which unfortunately is no longer available, but gardening with kids is fun no matter how you grow your plants!)

Since I have several kids in my classroom, I try to make sure that our experiences are accessible to everyone and that it is feasible to do activities in a larger group. Growing real plants in the classroom is not always an option.

When that happens, we still love to do this super fun labeling activity by adding a hands-on element with fake flowers, twine for the “roots,” and dry beans. Store these items away and you can reuse them year after year!

As we wait for our seeds to sprout, we have been learning more about the parts and structure of plants so that we can understand more about what they need and how to care for them.

We are building up our vocabulary and adding new words all the time. Before planting our seeds, we learned more about the word seed and what it really is. We also talked about what else we might see as plants start to grow. For example, we may see a stem, roots, and leaves.

Students identify what each picture is and label the plant part.

This opened up a great discussion about if all plants are the same, or if they are different. It also prompted my students to talk about plants using these new vocabulary words and to look more closely at them and study their details.

When we were familiar with the vocabulary it was time to start labeling. This simple, printable labeling activity was a hit! The kids were so proud that they were able to complete this activity independently.

This printable labeling activity has fun pictures of plant parts and a word bank.

Their favorite part may have been coloring the fun pictures at the end!

  1. Hello, where did you buy the gro-able seed pods? I can’t find them online or in stores. Thank you. This is a great idea!

    1. Hi Ginger,

      We found our seed pods on Amazon but if they are not currently available, we have also used regular seeds and potting soil. Both options are perfect for pairing with the printables! 🙂
