In this lesson pupils watch a short video about the life cycle of a flowering plant and complete an accompanying worksheet. They label a diagram, then draw and colour their own flower to complete the worksheet.
Children should be interested in the fact that we plant seeds in spring, and in autumn we can see seeds, nuts and berries on plants once the flowers have died. After watching the video and completing the worksheet, you can extend the topic according to your age group using activities from the LearnEnglish Kids website.
- To provide a simple explanation of the life cycle of plants.
- To present a topic related to the seasons: spring (seeds are planted) and autumn (new seeds form and fall to the ground) and to World Wildlife Day (the 3rd of March).

- To develop listening, speaking and labeling skills.
- To provide children with an opportunity to label a diagram and draw their own flower.
