>Fun with Plants…

April 29, 2010


Last we started our plant unit in literacy and science. We started off reading a nonfiction book regarding plants. We learned about the parts of the plant and then drew a diagram with labels. The children did a fantastic job on learning the parts of a plant and the jobs of each part. We then came the exciting part of planting our own plants! The children then learned about observations and recording what they observe. Today was a highlight for many children in the classroom. About half of our seeds sprouted and the children were THRILLED! The children drew what they saw and then wrote at least one sentence about what they see. I am AMAZED by their observations and what they are writing. These young learners are becoming scientists! I cannot wait for the next few days to watch their excitement continue as we continue to learn about plants!
