Welcome to our How Does Your Garden Grow pre-K lesson! Today we are going to learn all about plants, gardens and how they grow. We’ll explore the different stages of a plant’s life cycle and how they need sun, water, and soil to grow. We will also look at different types of plants and experiment with planting a few of our own. So let’s get started!A garden is an area of land planted with a variety of flowers, trees, vegetables, and other plants for decoration, enjoyment, or utility. Gardens can be either large or small and may be formal or informal in design. Gardens may also be used to provide food for people and animals, to attract wildlife, or to provide shade or shelter.
Gardening can be a very rewarding hobby. Planting and growing your own vegetables, flowers, or herbs can be both fun and functional. With proper planning and preparation, anyone can get started on their own gardening journey. The first step to a successful garden is choosing the right seeds.
When selecting seeds for your garden, it’s important to consider what type of climate you live in as well as the amount of sunlight available in your area. Different plants have different needs when it comes to light, water, and
Nurturing the Soil
Soil is one of the most important elements in our environment. It provides a home for many animals, plants and microorganisms and is essential for human life. Nurturing the soil is an important part of taking care of our environment. Healthy soil is rich in nutrients and has good aeration, drainage, and water-holding capacity. It also helps to prevent erosion and provides a stable environment for plants to grow in.
There are several ways to nurture the soil, including adding organic matter, maintaining a balanced pH level,
Watering and Sunlight
When caring for your plants, it is important to provide them with the right amount of water and sunlight. Watering your plants is essential for their growth and health. The amount of water needed depends on the type of plant, its size, and the climate in which it is growing. It is also important to provide adequate sunlight. Plants need sunlight to photosynthesize, which helps them grow. Different plants have different light requirements, so it’s important to research the specific needs of each plant before putting them in your garden or planter.
Plants are an important part of the environment, and it is important to be able to identify them correctly. The process of identifying plants can be done in several ways, depending on the type of plant and the resources available. For example, books and online resources can be used to look up information about a particular plant. Additionally, experienced gardeners may be able to provide assistance in identifying a plant.
When trying to identify a plant, it is important to note any distinctive features that can help identify the species or genus. For example, leaves
Composting is a great way to reduce your waste and help the environment. Compost is a dark, crumbly, and earthy-smelling material that is created when organic matter decomposes. It can be used as a soil amendment to improve soil structure, aeration, and fertility, or even as a mulch to suppress weeds and retain moisture. Composting is beneficial to your garden because it helps break down organic matter into its most basic form, providing essential nutrients for plants. It also helps reduce the amount of waste

Exploring how plants grow can be a fun and engaging activity for young children. Through this prek lesson, students have been able to observe and understand how a garden grows from seeds to plants. Students were able to identify the parts of the plant, explore the different stages of growth, and practice counting and sorting seeds. They also learned about the importance of water, sunlight, and soil in helping plants grow. This experience provided them with an opportunity to develop fine motor skills, explore their environment, expand their scientific knowledge, and appreciate nature.
