Lessons from Africa 15: How do Plants Grow?

About This Primary Resource

This lesson plan focuses on the growth of a plant (any sprouting plant can be used) and how the amount of air and light it receives effects its growth. The resource contains comprehensive instructions of how to set up the experiment and a record sheet for the children to record their findings on. This activity can be a standalone activity or can be linked with another topic, such as food growth in Africa.

This resource has been kindly shared with us by Lessons from Africa, which is the education programme run by the charity Send a Cow. For 25 years Send a Cow have been helping thousands of African families and orphans grow enough food to eat, sell their produce and develop small businesses that last.

If you would like to find out more about Send a Cow, or make a donation to the charity, then please have a look at their website: www.sendacow.org.uk. Lessons from Africa also offer hundreds more resources suitable for Key Stage 2-4, find them all at their website: www.sendacow.org.uk/lessonsfromafrica.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.
