‘Plants are cool too!’ flip book

  • Coloring pencils
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Vegetables (carrots, cabbage, beans, sweet potatoes etc.)

How to use this resource:

Have a look at the pictures and activity descriptions below to get a better idea on how to complete each of the pages in the Plants Are Cool Too! booklet.

Page 1: What a plant needs

‘What a plant needs’ Page

Ask the children what they think a plant needs to grow. Go for a walk outside and ask the kids to have a look at their surroundings. What do the plants and trees grow in? Look up to the sky. Do they think plants will grow without sunlight? Have they seen their parents water their plants at home? Why do they think the do that?

When you get back to the classroom, hand out the ‘Plants are Cool Too!’ booklets and let the kids color the ‘What a plant needs’ page.

Page 2: Parts of a Plant

Once again, go for a walk outside (this is the best topic for an excuse to spend as much time as possible outdoors in nature!). Let the children observe the plants and trees around them. Which parts can they see? Talk about the leaves, flowers, stems, trunks and all their functions.

Now ask them if they know how the plants can stay in one place, upright? Explain that the part of a plant that we can’t see is called the roots and plants need these to absorb food (nutrients) from the soil and to stay tight in one spot.

Once everyone gets back to the classroom, let the children complete the ‘Parts of a plant’ puzzle on page 3 of the ‘Plants are cool too!’ booklet.

Page 3: Plants We Eat

Plants we eat activity
‘Plants we eat’ page

Prepare some raw cut-up vegetables beforehand. Ask the children if they know which part of a plant each of these are. Talk about all the different plants we can eat. Let the kids try each of the vegetables. Delicious right?

When everyone is done eating, hand out the ‘Plants are cool too!’ page and ask the kids to name the pictures and then to color it.

Page 4: Life-Cycle of a plant

The last page of the ‘Plants are cool too!’ booklet is all about the life-cycle of a plant. Talk to the kids about our own life-cycles. How we are born as babies, grow into toddlers, then children, then teenagers, then adults and finally elderly people. Ask the children whether they think plants have a life-cycle? Introduce them to the vocabulary of all the different stages of the life-cycle and then complete the last page of the booklet.

You have now completed the ‘Plants are cool too!’ booklet. On to the next activity!
