With four IEP’s in the next 3 weeks, I probably won’t be able to post much. But while I’m busy writing goals, I thought I’d share this great page I found. This wonderful blog, Education Outside at AFY, has pictures and explanations of plant part activities they have done in their gardening program–check it out!

Our second and third grade students have been learning all about the six plant parts!
Third grade students began learning about seeds by dissecting different fruits.
Everyone got to take home neat cranberry bean seeds!
One student even sprouted the seeds at home! Way to go!
Second grade students played plant dress-up.
Then they went on a plant parts hunt in the garden!
They practiced the ABCDE’s of scientific drawing, and labeled the plant parts that they found.
We tallied everyone’s results and made a class bar graph of the plant parts present in the garden at AFY. There are many mysteries to be investigated in our garden!
I don’t know about you, but I think I’ll be a plant for Halloween!
Don’t forget! Our fall garden work day…
