Why Lesson Planet?
Beginning botanists can sketch the parts of a plant in individual boxes, or better yet, they can tape or glue actual plant parts in them. Beside each box are a few sentences with selected words left out. From the word bank at the bottom of the page, little horticulturists can choose what words to use to fill in the blanks. Each blank has the first letter of the missing word printed to make it easier. Assign this activity to upper elementary children during a life science unit.
