Today you will be looking at how plants grow and change. Your tasks are shown below, there is also an optional extension task at the bottom.

4 Plant Growth Factors That Affect All Plants | LoveToKnow

Today’s tasks are:

  1. Watch the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and think about the questions.
  2. Watch the videos on how plants grow and the lifecycle of a plant.
  3. Look at the example diagram of the lifecycle of a plant and complete the activity.

Plants, animals and humans change as they grow, e.g. seeds grow into plants, caterpillars grow into butterflies and children grow to become adults.

Below is the story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’.

Do living things carry on growing, like the enormous turnip in the fairy story? Will you stop growing when you are an adult? Are you growing now? How do you know that you’re growing?

(Adults might not get any taller but their hair and nails will continue to grow. Their skin will grow and repair itself. Children are getting bigger/taller each year. They are out-growing their clothes, etc.)

Now watch the videos about how plants grow and change:

How plants grow

Lifecycle of a plant

Thinking about what you have learnt from the videos, look at this diagram (picture with labels) of the lifecycle of a plant.

Your task: Draw your own lifecycle of a plant diagram, with labels. You can choose your own plant or use the one from the example if you are stuck for ideas.

There is a simplified example of the lifecycle of a bean plant below.


If you are able to get hold of some seeds (we know this might be tricky at the moment!), have a go at growing your own plant at home! Keep a diary of how it grows and changes. Below is a template for keeping a plant diary.
