From Seed to Plant Life Cycle Unit Study

The theme for Nature Book Club this month is Life Cycles. Something as simple as growing a plant from a seed is an excellent way to teach your kids about the life cycle of a plant. Since the beginning of the gardening season is upon us, I thought we would start a Plant Life Cycle Unit Study for our Nature Book Club studies.

Starting a plant from seed will give your kids the opportunity to observe the parts of the plants growing at each stage. How the roots develop and expand to provide for the tiny little stalk. How two small leaves help the plant create food working with the nutrients the roots collect to create the right balance that leads to more leaves and eventually flowers and fruit or seeds.
