I'm so excited to join Elementary Antics for a spring time blog hop! Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. Flowers are blooming, the weather is warmer, and the clear blue skies are beautiful.
When spring comes around, it's one of the best time for students to learn about plants. During my student teaching, I did a fun plants unit. Students learned about plants.
I had students decorate Styrofoam cups to look like vases. Then they got to choose what flower they wanted to grow. Later, they would take them home and give them to their moms for Mother's day. =)
Most of them grew slowly. There was one that grew very well. So much so that the vine wrapped around my desk.
Here's a wonderful freebie to use with your older students. Task cards are a big hit, but not one has time to print and cut them out. These digital task cut the work in half. All you have to do is print the recording sheet.
All you need is a tablet or iPad. You could even use your interactive board and play as a whole class. You can get this freebie here, but only for a limited time!
