Plants for Kindergarten

We spent a week exploring seeds & plants for kindergarten. This is a fun topic for my kids because they are always anxious to plant our garden & starting picking produce! By the time we finished this lesson we were about ready to pick our first radish and kids had a better understanding about how plants grow, plant anatomy, and a better appreciation of many different flower and vegetable plants are out there! Use these plant activities of kindergarten with preschoolers and kindergartners as a weekly theme or supplement to your spring theme. You will love the construction paper flowers and coloring carnations with science!

carnation science experiment for kids

Coloring Carnations

I explained how plants “drink” water like we do from a straw. The stem is their straw from which they get all their water. We did the classic experiment of placing white carnations in colored water. I asked the kids to make a hypothesis of what would happen. After about 2 hours there was a hint of some green & blue on the carnations. 2 days later the blue & green carnations were fairly well colored. The orange watered carnation had traces of orange around the edge of the petals. The yellow and the pink watered carnations had not changed at all. The black carnation turned it green.

Since this attempt, we’ve perfected dying flowers and can now make one flower have more than one color! You’ve got to see it!

Seed Germination for Kids

We also germinated our own seed. This was a great way to observe what happens under the soil when we plant a seed. We moistened a paper towel and rung it out slightly. We placed the wet paper towel and 3 pea seeds inside a small Ziploc bag. The kids taped them to a sunny window and we waited & observed.

We acted out dormant seeds in sleeping bag popping out. Sorry, I couldn’t see to get a picture that capture it well.
