The Life of a Plant - A Life Science Poem

We found this poem while studying the Life Science Unit from Scott Foresman Science

My son memorized it, put movements to it and performed it for us.
Here it is:

The Life of Plant

A plant will grow from a tiny seed
Some water and sun is all you need

First, the roots grow underground
They suck up minerals from all around

Then come stems, some tall, some stout
And next the branches spread about

Leaves grow in all shapes and sizes
Watch the new life as it rises

Flowers bloom from buds on stems
They are as pretty as precious gems

Some plants give us juicy fruit
Some have vegetables at the root

New seeds travel to and fro
By wind and water they will go

And the cycle keeps on going
Soon new stems and leaves are showing
