Task: Rearrange the sentences.

Activity: Think and Understand (Thing needed for a plant.) 
Plants need water and sunlight to grow properly. So, we must water the plants and make sure they get enough sunlight. Some of us may have plants at home and take care of them. We must be careful and make sure we do not hurt them. So, plucking leaves from a plant or pulling the plant apart is not good.


Hope you enjoy the lesson plan and activities.
