Do You Know the Parts of Plants? Tune: Head, Shoulders, Knees, And Toes

Do you know the parts of plants,
Parts of plants?
Do you know the parts of plants,
Parts of plants?
All kinds of plants that grow and grow and grow.
Do you know the parts of plants,
Parts of plants?


The roots hold the plant in place,
Plant in place.
The roots hold the plant in place,
Plant in place.
The roots store food and water, too.
The roots hold the plant in place,
Plant in place.


The stem move water up the plant,
Up the plant.
The stem move water up the plant,
Up the plant.
The stem brings water to the leaves.
The stem move water up the plant,
Up the plant.


The leaves soak up the sun,
Soak up the sun.
The leaves soak up the sun,
Soak up the sun.
The sun helps the plant to grow and grow and grow.
The leaves soak up the sun,
Soak up the sun.


The flower grows into a fruit,
Into a fruit.
The flower grows into a fruit,
Into a fruit.
Inside the fruit are little tiny seeds.
The flower grows into a fruit,
Into a fruit.

Little Seed (Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)

Here's a little seed in the dark, dark ground.
Out comes the warm sun, yellow and round.
Down comes the rain, wet and slow.
Up comes the little seed, grow, grow, grow!

This is the Way We Plant the Seeds (Tune: Mulberry Bush)

This is the way we plant the seeds,
Plant the seeds, plant the seeds,
This is the way we plant the seeds,
Early in the springtime.

This is the way we put in the seeds...
This is the way we cover the seeds...
This is the way we water the seeds...
This is the way we check the seeds...

Parts of Plants Song (Tune: Muffin Man)

Oh, do you know the parts of plants,
The parts of plants, the parts of plants?
Do you know the parts of plants
That make them grow and grow?

The roots, they hold the plant in place,
The plant in place, the plant in place.
The roots they hold the plant in place
Soak up food and water, too.

The stem moves water up the plant,
Up the plant, up the plant.
The stem moves water up the plant
Brings water to the leaves.

The leaves soak up the rays of sun,
The rays of sun, the rays of sun.
And help the plant make food.

The flower grows into a fruit,
Into a fruit, into a fruit.
The flower grows into a fruit, Which holds the tiny seeds.

Now you know the parts of plants,
The parts of plants, the parts of plants,
Now you know the parts of plants,
That make them grow and grow.

Green Plants Need Song (Tune:"Three Blind Mice")


Three main things, three main things,
Green plants need, green plants need.
For plants to grow and plants to thrive,
In order to keep green plants alive,
What does it take for them to survive?
Just three main things.


Plants need sun, plants need sun,
That's number one, plants need sun.
For plants to grow and plants to thrive,
In order to keep green plants alive,
What does it take for them to survive?
Just three main things.


Plants need air, plants need air,
Be aware, plants need air.
For plants to grow and plants to thrive,
In order to keep green plants alive,
What does it take for them to survive?
Just three main things.


Plants need water, plants need water,
Especially when it's hotter, plants need water.
For plants to grow and plants to thrive,
In order to keep green plants alive,
What does it take for them to survive?
Just three main things.


Plant Fingerplays

Mister Carrot

Nice Mister Carrot
Make curly hair, (Hand on head)
His head grows underneath the ground (Bob head)
His feet up in the air. (Raise feet)

And early in the morning
I find him in his bed (Close eyes, lay head on hands)
And give his feet a great big pull (Stretch legs out)
And out comes his head!
