Playing With Plants
This month we tried to understand how roots, stems and leaves grow? We started with a lesson on parts of the plant and needs of the plant.
We became scientist this month. We did the walking rainbow experiment to understand how the capillary action works and how the roots and the xylem in the stem helps bring the water and the nutrients up to the leaves.
Children love playing with flowers. They enjoyed dissecting a flower and learning about the parts of the flower and their functions.
From flowers we moved on to play with leaves, we learned about different kinds of leaves and we used them to paint and create art work.
Children got exposed to different parts of the plant that we eat. They got introduced to the rhubarb as the stem, broccoli as a flower and carrot as a root.
Children loved reading books on plants, a couple of books that touched their hearts were `Sylvia’s spinach’ and `The Peace Tree from Hiroshima’.
Verde children made beautiful succulents terrarium this month. They painted a recycled glass jar and potted their succulents. It was a fun project!
