First we read this book, How a Seed Grows by Helene J. Jordan. I let them explore some seeds under supervision. We'll be planting some seeds this weekend, but I wanted to start with some basics first.
This was our project, labeling the parts of a flower.
I cut circles and leaves out for S&J to make a flower with. They used Do a Dot paint to make the petals and stems.
I did the flower on the left for them to have an example. We put the labels on together and talked about them as we did it. The labels below are actually glued onto the sticky part of a post-it note so they can put them on and off as they want. Our project tomorrow will be doing a picture with what plants need to live.
