12 Free Plant Unit Studies and Lapbooks

plant unit studies

Biology is one of the most commonly taught in homeschool science classes for elementary students. In fact, my 2nd grader is doing a biology study this year, with a 6 week focus on plants. So, I wanted to start a list of free plant unit studies and lapbooks that could be used for all elementary students.


Homeschool Share has a variety of plant unit studies and lapbooks in a variety of different levels, from a very basic look at how plants work, to a full blown Botany study.
