"This could be such a funny extension of our grass caterpillars! It allows children to be more connected to nature, while also encouraging children to care for themselves and their peers, as they look after and help each other "grow their hair""
Parts of a plant: we did this in Playschool a few weeks ago with kids ages 1-5 and took our time talking about the various things a plant needs to grow as we added each one and then our labels. We added a label for the stem, one for the leaf, and the petals. For the flower petals we used cupcake liners, a great activity for kids especially preschool age that's interactive, educational, and fun! A great precursor to planting real flowers or plants in the classroom or home as we did yesterday!
