We have been really working on some botany activities lately. I have posted about some of it, but I wanted to show you what we have done the last few days! I don’t have the traditional Botany Cabinet, but I figured that if we used real leaves we could learn much the same things. So the other day we went for a walk, but with all the wind blowing, Bunny found some great leaves that I wasn’t planning on finding! So our walk quickly turned into a leaf hunt! After finding the leaves,we put them on contact paper, cut them out and put then into a notebook. Then I took the botany cabinet three part cards and we pick which shape each leaf was and Bunny wrote it in the book. It turned out really well. I think that we will look into the identity of each leaf next. I found a book at the library that will help with that.
Bunny also drew a great picture of a bean and I asked her to tell me about our bean work. This is what she said. I think she did a great job! 🙂
So far I have been amazed at what she remembers and she is liking the work! Tomorrow we are headed to a greenhouse to see how plants grow! I will of course take pictures! 🙂
