Since I don’t seem to have the best green thumb, my husband bought me an indoor vegetable garden. You can easily put in the pods, add water when the blue light comes on, and add liquid plant food when the green light comes on.
You want tomatoes? No problem! Just about a month and there are fresh, red tomatoes at your finger tips. It’s amazing to see the growth in such a short amount of time.
Life cycles are so fun to explore with young, curious learners! This multi-sensory stages of a plant life cycle for kids really brings the process to life and helps kids remember it.
I love that it requires simple materials that you probably already having lying around. And I love that you can adapt the life cycle of a plant for kindergarten craft into ANY life cycle you might be studying! Imagine all the comparing and contrasting possibilities.
Learning the 4 Stages of a Plant Life Cycle in Preschool

REGARDLESS OF THE ANIMAL, PlANT, OR INSECT, LIFE CYCLES ARE A GREAT WAY TO INTRODUCE YOUNG LEARNERS TO NEW VOCABULARY AND CYCLICAL PROCESSES. THIS IS REAL SCIENCE FOR KIDS!
Biology for kids help children connect with nature, and they help them understand the world around them.
This life cycle of a plant diagram is a great hands-on way to explore how a plant comes into the world. Since kids are already familiar with plants and typically have background knowledge, learning specific information about how a seed becomes a flower is fascinating and real to students.
The life cycle of a plant activity worksheet includes seeds, sprouts, leaves, roots, and buds.
I like to use the life cycle of a plant for kids at the end of the unit to review what we learned, to practice the vocabulary, and to have a final finished product to refer to as we study other plants, animals, and insects.
In addition to learning about seeds and stems, you can pose additional questions to young learners. Depending on the species of plant you study, there could be additional questions for thought:
- How does a plant change as it develops?
- What does the plant need to grown and survive?
- How do the roots help the plant?
- What food can you get from plants?
What Can Preschoolers Learn While Making a Diagram of the Life Cycle of a Plant?
science activities for kids
LEARNING ABOUT LIFE CYCLES IN KINDERGARTEN SCIENCE IS A GREAT TIME TO INTRODUCE SCIENTIFIC VOCABULARY THAT SOMETIMES TRANSFERS TO OTHER TOPICS.
Why Is It Important For Kids To Learn About Life Cycles?
Children are naturally curious about everything around them. Learning about the life cycles of living things help them understand the world a little bit better.
How To Use Make the STEM Plant Lifecycle
How To Make The Lifecycle Diagrams
Create each stage of the life cycle with the children. Cut out the pieces and have the children place them in the correct order. It’s best to have them place it on the spot before they glue it on so you can check for understanding.
Create a Book
Make a life cycle book with half sheets of paper and child illustrations/labels of each step in the life cycle of a plant. These can include seed pods and flowering plants.
Give your child real-life life cycle pictures for a plant unit and see if they can match them to the diagrams.
