Worksheet Overview

Life Cycle of a Plant


All stages of a plant's growth are part of its life cycle.

Plants begin as seeds or bulbs, before growing into full plants, with different stages along the way. 


Germination is the process by which seeds begin to grow into plants. 

Roots grow down and shoots grow upwards.

The stem continues to grow up and leaves grow from it. 

The plant then begins to flower.

If it is a fruit plant, the fruit will then grow. 

As the plant dies, the seeds disperse back into the ground.
