Spring Plants

We started by reading The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle.
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. 
Plant Anchor Chart
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}

Plant Booklet, Anchor Chart, and Lesson
The activities are taken from my little pack {here} It includes all you need for your plant lesson, including the anchor chart!
We did our first flipflap book, and it was fun! This one was about the parts of a plant.
It was a freebie from Shelly Anton {here} Thanks for sharing this Shelly!
We talked all about the spring season, and compared it to the other seasons.
Season Sort activity
Students sorted seasonal pictures on a pocket chart.

Then did the corresponding cut and paste activity.

I am SO happy that it finally looks {and feels} like spring here. I can't wait to take my students outside to do our Signs of Spring Scavenger Hunt...a freebie, found {here}

We are reading that book this week, too! It goes along so well with our plant unit. Your plant activities are adorable!
