Science Lesson - Plant Adaptations, Grade 1

  • Activity 1 / The Cactus Plant Worksheet

    Just like animals, different types of plants have unique features that help it adapt to the climate in which it lives. The cactus is perhaps one of the most intriguing plants because of its sharp spikes, and the ability to store water, much like a camel does in its hump! Encourage your little scientist to review his or her knowledge of cacti by printing this free biology worksheet. Simply read each sentence and check off the correct answer to demonstrate how a cactus survives in the harsh desert environment!

  • Activity 2 / Rainforest Plants Worksheet

    It obviously rains quite a bit in the rainforest, meaning plants must adapt to the conditions to survive! Some plants have developed unique features, such as pointed leaves to shed excess water, or plants that grow high up on trees to find more sunlight. Review these important adaptations with your little learner as they complete this intriguing worksheet that features the many ways that plants adapt to survive!

  • Activity 3 / Pond Plant Adaptations

    Plants can grow almost anywhere on earth, including in water, such as freshwater ponds! Intriguingly, these plants have interesting methods of adapting to their water-logged life, including free floating or large floating leaves that connect to long stems that reach the dirt below. Review these unique adaptations with your student while completing this fascinating worksheet that reviews how pond plants adapt to their environment!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!
