About "Plant A Seed"
Let your child create their own steps to plant a seed, and make sure your they follow it! The goal here is to start building the skills to translate real-world situations into online scenarios, and vice versa.

Materials Needed:
• Glue
• Seeds
• Flower Pot
• Printable worksheet (find it here)


  1. Circle the steps for planting a seed from the printable worksheet. Work together to choose the six correct steps from the nine total options.

  2. Glue the six correct steps, in order, onto a separate piece of paper.

  3. Follow the instructions, step-by-step, to plant the seed!

Questions to ask afterwards to reflect with your child:
• What steps would you have added to make the process even better?
• What if the algorithm had been only one step: "Plant the seed"?
• Would it have been easier or harder?
• What if it were forty steps?
• What was your favorite part about that activity?
