      Great activity. I always grow TickleMe Plant seeds with my classes as the children can see the only plant that will move their leaves and lower their branches when tickled! Find TickleMe Plant classroom kits online.

    It's plant time!!

    KMG-This is a great charting activity with plants and can be used toward the end of the lesson to ensure that the students understand the lesson. The parts of the plant and what the plants give are more complex complex concepts for kindergarten, but it is still okay to introduce and teach it. I just will not require reciprocation of the information in order to achieve mastery.

      I did this with my class and you should have seen the beans sprout. The children enjoyed making the frame of the greenhouse. Will do it again this Spring.

    Neat way to teach about the parts of a tree.

      I like this. I think even better would be to somehow use real sticks as branches.
