The Kids Nature class as a lot of different activities to help develop many different skills as we learn about plants. One of our resource will be our own journals to draw and write about these plants. These are simple journals with blank pages giving the kids and parents a choice to work on art skills or/and writing skills.
We will be spending a session ever week learning about different botany terms and what they mean. While this is a very intensive and in-depth study, for the kids we will be doing very basic simple terms. Like the different between simple and compound, opposite or alternate, and basic parts of a plant. The idea for this is to build a good foundation for additional learning and also how to identify flower into families.
We will also be going out and identifying plants and collecting plant samples. We will be making our own plant cards for future reference. These homemade cards will last as long as they are cared for and will always help to remind us what plants are what. The rest of the day will be spent playing games and exploring the world around us.
