 Flower Day

Movement Lesson
for Flower Day

The students will act out the growth of a flower.


  • A large open space allowing for movement.

  • A book about flower seed growth, such as The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle.



  1. Discuss with the students the growth of a flower seed.  It starts out small, the roots grow down, a stem grows up, the flower blooms, the seeds disperse, and the cycle continues.  Read a book, such as The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle, to illustrate the cycle.

  2. Have the students act out the growth of a flower seed by doing the following steps:
    1. Crouch down small near the ground to be a seed.
    2. Start to come out of the crouching position to imitate the growth of the stem.
    3. Stomp their feet around to simulate the growth of roots down into the earth.
    4. Raise their hands up and spread them out to be the leaf growth and the flower blooming.
    5. Run around to be the seeds blowing in the wind and dispersing for the cycle to start all over again.



Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Make a game where the students try to toss sunflower seeds into a flower pot.

  2. Create a drama about a flower seed, it's growth, and it's dispersal of seeds.
