Parts of a Plant

In this movie, you’ll learn about different parts of a plant. You’ll explore how the roots hold a plant into the soil and take in nutrients and water. The stem holds up the plant, and the leaves take in light that the plant uses to make food. Some plants grow flowers. The flowers turn into fruit, which has seeds. When the fruit ripens, it falls to the ground, and the seeds inside can grow into new plants. What's your favorite fruit to eat? Did you know that we also eat flowers, like broccoli and cauliflower?

    These resources are outstanding! It gives a fantastic description of what is included in the movie. The activities include real-life activities that students could put to use in the real world. The family & home connection ideas are well thought out. I really like how you could print the background information and send home with students to share with parents too. One thing that would be nice would be to include interactive notebook resources for all ages. When teaching science, a lot of teachers use interactive notebooks which in turn is a valuable resource for students. This is such a valuable resource when teaching Parts of a Plant!


    The resources for teachers and parents are a great asset towards the lesson. The information divided up in each part of the plant is good knowledge to recall when teaching the various parts of a plant. I am now encouraged to use the lesson ideas for educators while I am creating my lesson plans. I enjoyed reading how to engage the students after watching parts of plants video with interactive games and science experiments. There are even resources for home-schooled students. Thank you for this great resource for teachers.
