This flip book activity is a great addition to any plant life cycle unit or Earth Day unit! The book helps younger learners identify the different parts of a plant and describe the job of each plant part. The plant parts described in this flip book are the flower, the leaves, the stem and the roots.
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!
