When my teaching and lessons are engaging and combine body movements, my students learning soars! To help teach them to parts of a plant, we sing this song together. It's sung to the tune of "Head, shoulders, knees, and toes" and comes with directions for your body to go along with the words. My first graders loved it and it helps them remember all the parts of a plant! (the flower, stem, leaves, and roots)
Teacher tip: I always teach seeds first, but once we learn about seeds, the next step is learning about plants. Many students already have some background on plants, even if they don't know all the names of a plants parts, so this song is a great way to introduce a plant unit!
