Year 2: Plants

This list consists of lesson plans, activities and video clips to support the teaching of plants in Year Two. It contains tips on using the resources, suggestions for further use and background subject knowledge. Some possible misconceptions are highlighted so teachers may be ready to deal with them should they arise. 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:

• observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants
• find out and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy.
