Plant Project for 1st Grade Science


  • Help first graders understand that plants are alive because they breathe, eat and grow. Demonstrate that plants are alive by recording the growth in small houseplants.


  • Expose students to a variety of ideas about plants, such as planting a bean in soil to demonstrate the different stage of life in the plant, or placing carnations into colored water to demonstrate how plants suck up the water through the stem.


  • Demonstrate the different parts of a plant with different produce. Show how a carrot is the root of the plant, how celery is the stem of the plant, lettuce is the leaf of a plant, oranges are the fruit of the plant and how apples contain seeds.
