Springing Into Science-Blog Hop

 
 

 


“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”
Rainer Maria Rilke


It’s finally here! Spring!! The days are getting warmer, the birds are singing and flowers are popping up everywhere! 

Spring is such a busy time at home and at school. Between DIBELS, the SLO Test, Math Quarterlies and anything else I am forgetting spring is hectic! The kiddos are growing restless; they want to be outside in the sunshine! Since we can’t spend the whole day outside, I try to bring some outside in.

We have been learning all about plants, what they need, how they grow, etc. This is one of my favorite things to do with kindergarteners’ because they get so excited! It is pretty amazing that a tiny little seed can produce a beautiful flower.

 
 
 
 

We read many books about plants and seeds.  These two are my favorite. “Sunflower House” is a fun rhyming book that the kids really enjoy. “How Does a Seed Grow” shows various seeds and gets the students thinking.

 
  We planted yellow sunflowers.
 
We used two clear cups and some tape to create a "green house".
 

We also used some decorative tape and popsicle sticks to make plant markers.

 
Finally we created and labeled a flower. This was so much fun! I love how unique they all look.
