Let students learn about the life cycle of a Christmas tree with this fun and engaging no prep unit! This unit is centered around an original book I wrote named The Extraordinary Seed. Includes close reading activities with vocabulary, a fun Christmas tree crown with life cycle activity, star glasses, writing craftivity, leveled readers, a fun Christmas tree STEM challenge, and several ELA and math printables.
This may be no prep, but it is made to engage! Don't let the lack of intensive prep fool you!
Includes many options for kindergarten to second grade levels or use the different levels to differentiate instruction!

Note: There is a no prep option for the book to be read aloud with no pictures. If you would like pictures, there is also a low prep book that you fold in half and staple. You pretty much can fold the pages as they print, and then staple. However, everything in here can be no prep if you choose.
This Christmas, you don't need to visit 5 stores gathering supplies, spend an afternoon smelling melting plastic from a laminator, or do any "teacher cutting" to prep the items. You only need supplies that are typical things a teacher would have on hand (paper, white card stock, crayons or markers, scissors for the students, glue, and a stapler). No laminating, no way! The kids do all the cutting, you don't! This Christmas, simply print and go!
This resource is for personal use only and one license is for one classroom. Multiple licenses may be purchased for a discount if more than one teacher will be using. My family and the children's home in India that we support with a nice size portion of the income from the sales of this resource appreciate your honesty and integrity to not share this resource. Sincerely thank you!
