Creating Plants in First Grade Enrichment

First grade students in enrichment spent the last two weeks of school creating their very own original plants!  As we ended the year, students were excited to design and create 3D plants.  Plants had to meet a checklist of 'plant features' including but not limited to thinking about:  seed, roots, stem, leaves, flowers, fruit, sources of nutrients, and methods for collecting sun, water and nutrients!  It was a great end to our year as each student shared with the class one creative feature of their plant. I love watching students think creatively--their imaginations ran wild as their designs ranged from carnivorous to candy eating to magical plants and everything in between!

Enjoy this slideshow that provides a peek at some of their designs!
