Topic: Plants, Gardening, Bunny Rabbit, Mouse, Age: Preschool Active Learning Strategy: Flashcards
Title: Plant Parts
Learning Objective: Using flashcards, students will be able to identify the different parts of a plant and the different stages of plant growth.
Description: In this activity, students will correctly identify different parts of the plant lifecycle and different parts of plants using flashcards. The students will read the book From Seed to Plant by Gail Gibbons and then review a series of flashcards to test them on what they learned. Once they have done this, students will have the chance to create their own flashcards so that they can continue to learn about plants after the lesson is over.
Materials: Copy of From Seed to Plant by Gail Gibbons, flashcards, paper, writing utensils
Notes about this strategy: This strategy was broken up into two parts, but if time is limited, you can always just have the students read and run through the flashcards or read and create their own. Either way, the intention is to test students' knowledge of what they read without using a test.
