We have finished our Plant Lapbook! I found much of the info we put in it on the internet. Some things (puzzles) were from an Evan-Moor workbook that I got really cheap at a teacher supply store. The kids also cut out pictures from gardening magazines to decorate it.
Here are some of the things we included:
- Life cycle of a plant.
- What do plants need?
- Bible verses (Parables of the Sower, the Mustard Seed and the Weeds).
- What part of the plant do you eat–root, stem, leaf, fruit or seed?
- How seeds spread.
- Plants that we eat puzzle.
- Parts of a plant.
- Parts of a flower.
- Parts of a tree.
- Parts of a leaf.
- Label a cross-section of a tree ring.
- Differentiate between evergreen and deciduous tree pictures.
- Draw a simple leaf.
- Draw a compound leaf.
- A sunflower grows- puzzle.
- Parts of a tree and of a flower- puzzle.
- Strange plants.
- Plant defenses.
- Copywork poems: “Dandelion” by Valerie Worth and “Morning Has Broken” by Eleanor Farjean.
