Plants need air, sunlight, water and nutrients.  In kindergarten we talk about soil, but I do also use the word nutrients and describe what this mean.  I start with visuals and move to a variety of activities and crafts throughout the two weeks.

Each plant part has a specific role.  We take the time to look at each part and the job specific to that part.  We label the parts as a large group and then complete several large group activities. Throughout the two weeks we will revisit plant parts and jobs using a variety of activities.  Planting a bean in our little greenhouse shown below, would be a great way to show not only plant parts, but the plant life cycle.
