PreK/K Plant and Flower Unit

This week we've been learning about plants and flowers. It's been a fun unit. 

We read stories . . . 
The Magic School Bus Plants Seeds

The Carrot Seed

. . . watched YouTube videos . . 
The Tiny Seed

Sid the Seed

Parts of Flower - Video for Kids

The Needs of a Plant

One Seed

Sesame Street: Little Plant Song With Ernie

. . . made crafts and colored pictures . . .

We made the Learn About Flowers Craft. We've done this one before but the kids always enjoy it and it's so educational. It really helps them understand  and remember some of the different parts of the plant.

We had fun making this simple flower. I simply printed and cut out the flower template from this page and then let them decorate. I had circles from craft foam in various colors for the centers and then let them color the rest of the flower.

On Thursday we colored these two coloring pages printed from here.

Today we enjoyed helping the raindrops find their way through the maze to the flower.

. . . and we went for a walk and took pictures of the different flowers we found.
