Spring: Learning About Plants

Spring theme- learning about plants and the plant life cycle in Kindergarten and First Grade
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.

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}

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.
