Learning about plants (free printables)

Spring is (apparently) around the corner so we have been busy planting seeds in the hope we get lots of lovely flowers, veg and herbs in the coming months. The garden is a wonderful place to learn & The Little People love to get stuck in and help with digging and planting & of course there are always lots of questions.
Garden fun
We spent time talking about what seeds we were planting, what a seed needs in order to grow and the shapes of the different seeds.

Of course, typically for England, rain soon stopped play so we set about learning a little more about plants and based on the key areas The Little People payed attention to, I made a few quick work sheets to help them remember what we had talked about.

So far we have planted violet carrots, asparagus peas, twinkle peas, lettuce & radishes! There are plenty more to plant and I'm looking forward to updating you on our progress.

Please feel free to download the sheets for your own use, using the links below each photo. (the images shown won't be as good for quality)

Please note: the handwriting sheet seems to preview blank, once downloaded the sheet is actually complete

A lovely way to combine doing and learning with some great worksheets to back up the digging and planting. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.
