Kinder-garden- Learning About Plants and their Life Cycle

Spring theme: Learning About Plants in Kindergarten
We planted some seeds in our classroom.

Then did some review about what plants need to grow as well as the parts of a plant, using an anchor chart:

and had them choose what seed they'd like to plant. They had to copy the name of the plant on the back of their popsicle stick,
