“HERBS” is a topic of study, which will provide hands-on exploration to find answers to the question “What sets herbs apart from other plant?”
Children will use their senses to differentiate between plants. They will learn to plant and care for an herb garden.
I have included a weekly planner with suggested activities for story- and song time, center time, and small- and large group activities. Besides the three main lesson plans
“Comparing herbs to other plants”,
“Identifying and matching herbs using your senses”
it includes vegetable-fruit-herb seriation and matching cards. It also has a home-school connection activity (Nature Hunt), a skill checklist, and a printable herb guide. You will find picture recipe cards to use with the “Making soup” lesson and a list with resources for teachers and children.
