Jack and the Beanstalk: Plants 5-7

The story of Jack and the Beanstalk  makes a great starting point for teaching the topic of plants to younger primary aged children. In particular it would help children to notice and  describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants.  It would also help them to explore  what plants need to grow and stay healthy.  This would give a great context for working scientifically by observing over time and by trying out different growing conditions for growing your plants.
