The objective of this book is to help your students sharpen their identification skills when it comes to plant parts and open their minds to the wide variety of plants all around us.
Directions: During science time take students outdoors for twenty minutes to look for seeds on the first day then roots on the second day and so on. (This could also be used as a science center if you collect specimens outdoors before hand instead of taking your whole class outside. Then they would have to choose which plant parts are needed to fill in the page they are working on.)They can collect a variety of specimens in a plastic bag. Then they can bring them into the classroom and draw them in the jar and describe them in words below for twenty minutes. This will help students identify the different parts of a plant and practice their observation skills. At the end students will have an observation booklet they can take home and describe the plant parts to their family.
