Activity Type

  • Interactive Whiteboard Activities

Photosynthesis

When people get hungry, they go to a restaurant or their refrigerator. Not plants! They make their own food using photosynthesis.

Plant Cells

Plant cells are powerhouse workaholics! They do all kinds of jobs inside the plant, helping keep the plant alive and healthy.

Roots and Stems

How do plants drink all that water? Roots and stems work kind of like a straw, and they are the best friends of a thirsty plant.

Plant Adaptations

When the going gets tough, plants adapt! Plants have incredible ways to adjust to their surroundings.

The Kingdoms of Life

Even plants and animals want to belong! All living things fall into one of five kingdoms.

Flowers

Flowering plants have many parts that are required for reproduction. These parts, including the stamen, pistil, and ovary, work together to make seeds through the process of fertilization.

Mosses and Ferns

What do mosses, liverworts, club mosses, spike mosses, horsetails, and ferns have in common? They all reproduce using spores!

Plants With Seeds

Seeds are amazing things! Read this section, and you will never look at your sunflower seeds the same way again.

Plants Without Seeds

Did you know that plants do not all have seeds? Some plants reproduce by other means, and they get very creative!

Angiosperms: Seeds in Fruit

In some plants, called angiosperms, seeds grow inside fruit. That is a pretty tasty place to grow up, if you ask us!

Gymnosperms: Seeds in Cones

Plants have to get their seeds out somehow, and gymnosperms do it with cones. How? Let us show you!
