weather this Spring we have lots of flowers in bloom so we pretended to be
botanist for science time and dissected a flower. This was such a fun hands on learning
activity that allowed Little Tiger (Preschooler, age 4) to work on observation
skills, vocabulary, writing, and labeling (Petals, Stem, Leaves, Roots) using
our Learning About Plants printable (that is available to download for free
towards the end of this post).
This is part of this week’s Creative Preschool theme; Plants & Flowers (more great ideas listed at the end of this post). In case you missed it, our Creative Preschool themes have also included Shapes, Science Experiments, Learn About Food, Fine Motor Skills, Hair & Body, Fairy Tales, Ocean, Maps/Geography.
Learning About Plants
this activity we went outside and gathered flowers. I couldn’t get myself to
dig up our bulbs (tulips and daffodils) even in the name of science, so we dug
up some weeds to use for the roots in this activity and used the leaves, stems,
and petals of our tulips and daffodils.
