April showers bring May flowers, and with that come opportunities to integrate the science of plants into your classroom! In the K-3 curriculum maps, this short lesson is the perfect intro to a unit on the parts of a plant.
Using a catchy song and dance about the parts of a plant (to the theme of Head Shoulders Knees and Toes) it helps students engage and learn about the flower, stems, leaves, and roots! It appeals to multiple forms of intelligence at once and you can check understanding with one of three leveled worksheets! This bright and fun lesson is sure to be a hit with your students.
