I think most teachers would agree that the best way to learn about plants is to actually plant one. Taking children on nature walks is another great way to bring the study of plants to life. In addition to these kinds of authentic, hands-on opportunities, finding ways to embed media can greatly support instruction as well. Here’s a compilation of 13 clips for early learners that cover plant basics. I’ve previewed these songs and videos for quality, and hope you make good use of them. If you know of any others, please share them in the comments section!
