What we need to grow?


What do we need to grow?

Talk to the children about the concept of growing what do we know that grows and what things do they need to grow? What is alive/not alive etc.? attached is a ppt to discuss further with the children. 

Click on the link below to watch the video and take part in a little game about what is alive and what isn't alive.


I would like the children to make a list of things that we need or that plants need to grow. Talk to them about if we didn't have these things or plants didn't then we wouldn't be as strong and healthy as we are now and that plants wouldn't be able to grow. 

I have attached a sheet for the children or they can make their own for this writing activity.
