Science Art

Today I had the students work on their listening skills with a step-by-step art project that dealt with our previous science lesson.  The kindergartners are supposed to understand the needs of a plant as well as the parts of a plant.  

This lesson showed taught them where the parts of a plant are located. I encourage them to use the word soil rather than dirt.  We also discussed how sometimes people eat the leaves of a plant {lettuce, spinach, etc.} or the stems {celery, rhubarb, asparagus, etc.} or the roots {potatoes, onions, peanuts, etc} They were surprised by that!  The kindergarten students were quite focused on the lesson and I think we will be doing more art projects in the near future!
