Use this strawberry life cycle worksheet as a review for your kids. They can sequence the stages of the life cycle of a strawberry.
The life cycle of a strawberry is a fascinating process that begins with the pollination of flowers and ends with the harvesting of ripe fruit.
Each step in between is important for the healthy growth and development of the strawberry. This worksheet will help students take a closer look at the life cycle of a strawberry.
It can be difficult to teach sequencing to young students, but with the right tools and strategies, it can be a fun and engaging learning experience.
Adding this sequencing worksheet to your science plans is a great way to have kids review how strawberries grow.
Strawberry Life Cycle
Teaching the life cycles of living things is an important part of any preschool, kindergarten, and early elementary science curriculum.
Life cycles are a great way to help students learn about the world around them. By understanding how living things grow and change, they can better understand the process of life.
Preparing the Worksheet
This one-page printable requires no advanced preparation. Just print and go! If your kids don’t enjoy coloring, you can print this activity on colored printer paper.
You can also make this a reusable activity by printing it on cardstock and laminating it for durability. Cut out the sequencing cards at the bottom of the page.
Add a velcro dot to the backside of each sequencing card and in each empty box on the worksheet. Then, the kids can sequence the life cycle of a strawberry over and over again.
What Skills Are Covered?
I love when one simple activity covers so many skills! This worksheet does just that! But, what skills does it cover?
• Science: Children will learn how strawberries grow from seed to fruit. They’ll learn new vocabulary words associated with how plants grow – seed, fruit, stem, sprout, roots, etc.
• Logic: Sequencing events is a great logic-building activity. Kids learn to put things in the order that they happen. This skill helps them make sense of the world around them.
• Motor Skills: Cutting with scissors helps kids strengthen the small muscles in their fingers, hands, and wrists.
• Hand-Eye Coordination: Gluing the sequencing cards in order (or lining them up with the velcro dots) helps strengthen hand-eye coordination. Kids will have to align the sequencing cards on the mat straight so that they all fit properly.
