Year 1: Plants

This list consists of lesson plans, activities and interactive resources to support the teaching of plants in Year One. It contains tips on using the resources, suggestions for further use and background subject knowledge. Possible misconceptions are highlighted so that teachers may plan lessons to facilitate correct conceptual understanding. Designed to support the new curriculum programme of study it aims to cover many of the requirements for knowledge and understanding and working scientifically. The statutory requirements are that children are taught to:

• identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees

• identify and describe the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees.
