Planting Seeds Writing Freebie

Happy June, everyone! I'm excited to share a quick and free writing activity with you today!

One of my favorite activities to do with kids is planting seeds.  My four year-old currently has a bean plant growing in a bag on a window, and she has corn and bean seeds growing in clear plastic cups by a window sill.  She is always fascinated to see the day-to-day changes.  

If you plant seeds with your students, I have a great way to tie in a writing activity.  I made these simple, no-prep how-to writing pages for students to write the steps to planting a seed.  They're incredibly versatile, so you can use them whether you plant seeds in bags, in a school garden, etc.  I also included options for three- and four-step directions.

  3. Hi Katie,
    We have a garden at school. My first grade team has a science rotation and I teach science lessons that incorporate activities in our garden. Your How to Plant a Seed writing activity is a perfect school garden activity. Thanks so much!

  4. Once you have settled on the size, the selection of plants will determine the type of growing conditions you must create. Super
