We started by reading The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle.
Spring theme- learning about plants and the plant life cycle in Kindergarten and First Grade
This book does a great job describing the various types of areas seeds can land and why they may or may not be good for plant growth.

We followed up with a little anchor chart that tells what plants need, and describes the parts of a flower. You can find the chart {here}
