This post was originally published in April 2014! We still study seeds almost every year because the warmth of spring begs us to do so. ❤ I’ve updated this post and the Seed Writing Activities with fresh fonts, page layouts, and a big update to the How a Seed Sprouts Booklet.
The weather is finally warm and we’re getting our plans together for our garden. I love this time of year!
It’s the perfect time to study seeds, and that’s just what my kiddos and I are going to do over the next few weeks.
I’m teaming up with my friend Maureen to share some fun seed worksheets and activities!
After you download the seed writing activities here at Mama’s, make sure you head over to Spell Outloud to download a preschool Seed Journal (it’s so cute and perfect for the preschool age!).

Seed Writing Activities
This packet of seed writing activities has been completely updated with new fonts, new page layouts, and a black and white option for the seed page.
The biggest improvement is the Seed Booklet now has three different options for your young ones.
See below for details!
How a Seed Grows Booklet
I usually combined my children in science and history when they were Preschool – 3rd Grade. It made a more efficient use of my time, and it was just fun to learn together. Those memories are still dear to my heart!
When I combined all of my children, I needed activities that would be applicable to all ages.
If your situation is similar, this booklet will be perfect for your homeschool or classroom of varying needs.
There are three options available for using this Seed Booklet:
- Print the booklet with text, arrange the pages in the correct order, and read and read some more!
- Print the booklet without text, print the writing prompts, and students glue the prompts on the correct page of seed growth.
- Print the booklet without text, and have students write in each stage of the seed growth cycle.
Choose the option that is best for the age and stage of your children.
Seed Vocabulary Page
Print this seed vocabulary page as a one-time use page, or place it in a page protector and use dry erase markers to fill in the correct answers.
Using this daily for a week or two throughout your unit study would really cement those vocabulary words and their spellings.
There is a color version and a black and white version available in the download.
Seed Observation Record
You can’t have a seed unit study and not grow a few seeds! Whether you choose to use a ziploc bag or clear cup, or use something a bit more fancy like the Sprout and Grow window, growing seeds is a must.
→ Read how we used the Sprout and Grow window in this post.
You’ll want to record your observations each day, so I included a Seed Observation Record in this download. You can choose which record is best for your children:
— a 1-page record for Days 1-12
— a 2-page record, with 6 days on each page
Note that the original packet for personal use from 2014 is available for free for my email subscribers.
The updated packet is available for purchase below, and you may use it with your own children or purchase for your classroom.
