Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Grab a black pen, and add two dots to the bottom right of your page, and another two on the bottom left.
Connect these to one another using a ruler to create a long, thin rectangle.
Add half circles to the top of this rectangle.
Add smaller oval shapes inside each half circle…
And then add two thin lines to the top of the second shape or a stalk. Add two teardrop-shaped leaves to the top of the stalk.
Add another stalk and set of leaves to the right, this time slightly larger, and add smaller leaves underneath the top ones.
Add two curved lines to the right to create a tall, thin stalk that bends to the left.
Add small leaves to either side of the top of this stalk, and add another small shape to the right.
Add another set of leaves to the sides below this…
And then add another stalk to the right.
Add another strand of leaves to the top of the right stalk, and then add two small circles below this.
Add small marks to the top of these small circles to transform them into tomatoes.
Add another set of leaves to the bottom of this…
And then add marks to the bottom of the plants for the roots.
Use a light brown pen to shade the main sections of these half-circle roots.
Use a brown pencil for the rest of this rectangle…
And then use a light green pen for the small shoots. Grab a darker green for the larger plants.
Use a yellow pen for the small shapes in the bottom of the shoots…
And grab a bright red for the tomatoes.
Finally, use a black pen to add the labels to the relevant stages of the life cycle diagram. From left to right: Seed, Sprout, Seedling, Flowering, Plant with Tomatoes.
