At last year’s “planning session”, when we decided on what things we would like to learn about, my girls said plants… So I scheduled it in! While searching Pintrest for some ideas, I found this great unit already put together and fell in love! It has most of the areas that we wanted to cover already laid out and organized. So I thought…why re-invent the wheel! So today I am going to share the great unit I found along with some other resources and ideas we are using.
The base of this unit is from “Around the Kampfire”… You can snag some freebies or buy the printables at teachers pay teacher. The unit, “Life Cycle of Plants”, includes 20 activities and printable aids. This includes things like the “fold-able flower project book, observation journal, vocabulary cards, visual aids and soooo much more! She also shows how to use them in her “It’s Planting Time” blog post.
Montessori Print Shop offers some resources including this seed matching activity.

We are having a great time learning all about plants, how they grow and why we need them! Audrey has decided to use this unit as her science fair exhibit! She is so proud of how much her bean has grown!
