Parts of a Plant

Possum is 4 years 4 months

Chicken is 2 years 2 months


Here is a Montessori style concept book that I made with the boys.  It goes through the various parts of the plant.

(Mine is on the left, Chicken’s in the middle, and Possum’s on the right).

Possum particularly loved doing this.  Chicken loved it because he felt very grown up and was having Daddy cuddles at the same time.  (This was another waiting activity in a cafe).

The plan is to tie it in to discussions about veges and what parts of plants we eat.

I am learning this is all a much more organic process and formalising it doesn’t work unless that is what the kids want – at least at this stage.  (I always knew that, but sometimes it takes me a while to listen to myself!)
