We kicked off this week with the parts of the plant, what they need and how they get it. I made a quick anchor chart with the kiddos. I drew and labeled the flower and tree. The kids drew the pics for what they need :)
We began our first experiment...
After reading a few books and comparing the roots to straws, stem to a freeway, and leaves to a factory the kiddos were ready to make their flower flippers!
Its like a giant flip book! The kids and I come up with sentences to describe what it is that each part of the plant does. Then they choose the way that they like the best and write in under the plant part!
Add a little tissue paper to the center of the flower and tad-ah! They are resting on the carpet momentarily, but soon they will be up on the wall... I just have to bring myself to take down their amazing Cat in the Hats!
|A directed drawing lesson that I did with them for Dr. Seuss' Birthday! They did such an amazing job :)|
We will finish up plants next week and dive into animals! I can't wait :)
