@Michelle Garrard Ran copies of the hand on many colors of paper and passed out pieces of sandpaper, waxed paper, cotton, beans, and macaroni. We talked about the texture and what the best describing word would be to tell about the texture of each of those pieces of matter. We glued a piece on each fingertip and wrote the texture word on the finger.
Seed Jar Science Experiment For Kids. Spring science activity about how a seed grows is perfect for preschool and kindergarten science activities. A simple mason jar seed jar is fun for kids to make and watch seeds growing this Spring. Earth science activity for Earth Day ideas.
Parts of a plant: we did this in Playschool a few weeks ago with kids ages 1-5 and took our time talking about the various things a plant needs to grow as we added each one and then our labels. We added a label for the stem, one for the leaf, and the petals. For the flower petals we used cupcake liners, a great activity for kids especially preschool age that's interactive, educational, and fun! A great precursor to planting real flowers or plants in the classroom or home as we did yesterday!
