Kindergarten / Yochien / Hoiku Lesson Plan – Lesson Plan on Plant Lifecycles (Gardner Japan), Gardner philosophy

We currently have this lesson plan on Plant Lifecycles in Japan on our waitlist to be built. Join our waitlist for this Gardner plan (link in navigation).

Understanding plant lifecycles is important for preschoolers as it helps them develop an appreciation for nature and the environment. It also teaches them about the importance of taking care of plants and the role they play in our ecosystem. To create a preschool learning environment that teaches plant lifecycles, educators could set up a small garden area where children can observe and care for plants as they grow and change. They could also incorporate books, videos, and hands-on activities that explore the different stages of a plant’s life cycle. Potential lesson plan ideas could include planting seeds and observing their growth, creating a visual timeline of a plant’s life cycle, and exploring the different parts of a plant and their functions. Educators could also take children on nature walks to observe plants in their natural habitats and discuss their life cycles. By incorporating plant lifecycles into their curriculum, preschool educators can help children develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the natural world around them
