Plants *suitable for home teaching*
This resource, from ARKive, is designed to teach students about the main parts of a plant and their primary functions. Children complete a worksheet-based activity in which they must label and colour the main plant parts. This includes listing the function of each part. Children learn about some of the different types of seeds that plants produce, and their many dispersal methods. In another activity, children describe pictures of seeds and suggest ideas for how they think each seed is dispersed. Children also consider what plants need to grow. They discuss ways in which the main requirements for plant growth could be tested scientifically and will think about designing a fair test. The lesson finishes with interesting examples of some unusual plants, followed by a fun quiz to re-cap what they have learnt throughout the session. A presentation, activity sheet and teacher guidance is included in the materials.
