Seed Matching - Free Printables

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

We have a collection of seeds in our Spring Nature Table, and I created seed identification cards to help Miss E learn the names of those seeds.

Seed Matching Cards


  • Collect seeds you already have or buy seeds.
  • Glue seeds onto paper. 
  • Write name of seed above it.
  • Draw a picture of the plant.
  • Photocopy with a color copier. 
  • Cut out cards.
  • For durability, laminate or glue onto cardboard or heavy duty paper.
  • Allow child to play with cards and match seeds. 
  • Discuss the names of the plants.

I have created free seed matching printables if you would like to use those instead of making your own.  Please only use the seed matching cards for your own children or students, and do not sell these materials.  The scans aren't perfect, but my daughter has enjoyed using the printables.

This activity promotes science and literacy.  It encourages children to make observations of seeds and identify them.  It promotes literacy by seeing the printed names of the seeds on the cards.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Rebekah. I think that this is a great idea! You could pair it too with the book A Seed Is Sleepy.
