The Life Cycle of a Flowering Plant

Aimed at primary level, this resource provides a sequencing activity looking at the lifecycle of Brassica, a fast cycling flowering plant. It is designed to help children demonstrate their understanding of the progression through the lifecycle and reinforce their learning of the different stages. A matching activity asks children to place picture cards in the correct sequence on the outline of the life cycle.

The resource includes worksheets with an outline of the life cycle, with text but without pictures and templates for the drawings of the different stages of the rapid-cycling Brassica, from seed through to a mature plant with seed pods.

Produced by Science and Plants for schools (SAPS), it is one of a series of resources written to support plant science in the Primary Curriculum.
