Parts of a Plant: Lesson Plan and Worksheets for Kids

This article will provide a FREE lesson plan for teachers along with worksheets for kids who are learning the parts of plants.

What are the different parts of a plant?

Teaching Instructions:

​For this activity, you can bring plant to class or even ask your students to bring in a flower to show the class. If you have access to open grass, pick a daisy to show the class. Ask the students questions about the parts of a plant. Is it a flower, tree, or vegetable plant? Where are the different parts of the plants located? Point out the different parts of the plant as the students talk about them. Show the children the stem, roots (if they are any visible), leaves on the plant, petals (flower plants), and/or fruit or vegetable bearings from the plant.

Have students define the vocabulary words listed below. Ask students for definitions before defining the words for them. This gets them thinking and allows you to see how much they already know.

Read a plant book to the children and have them complete a worksheet based on their knowledge level. View worksheets below and check out our unabashed list of books about plants.
