Parts of the Flower



My 3′s and 4′s loved doing this project and did a great job.  It teaches the parts of the plant or flower and it was a great following directions activity.  Here is what we did:

1.  We read a few books about flowers and plants.  My favorite was called Grow Flower Grow.  It’s about a little girl who tries to get her flower to grow by feeding it food such as pizza and spaghetti.  She gets frustrated because it won’t grow so she throws it outside.  It finally starts to grow.  This lead to a great discussion about what they actually need to grow and how they get their food.

2. Then I gave them brown yarn, a straw, a small cupcake liner, and two leaves. They colored soil at the bottom of their paper and then glued the yarn down as roots.  Then they had to glue the straw, leaves, and the liner down.   As they were working we talked about why the plant needed each of those things.

    What a great visual, and so easy. I love any craft that doesn’t require me to head to the store first. ;)

    Yet another thing to mention is that an online business administration diploma is designed for individuals to be able to efficiently proceed to bachelor’s degree education. The Ninety credit certification meets the lower bachelor education requirements when you earn the associate of arts in BA online, you may have access to the most recent technologies in this field. Several reasons why students need to get their associate degree in business is because they may be interested in this area and want to receive the general training necessary prior to jumping in a bachelor education program. Many thanks for the tips you provide with your blog.
