Well, it feels like we have had more than our share of April showers around here this year. 🙂
Thankfully, the sun has finally started to warm up some of our days and the spring flowers are in full bloom. They are a beautiful sight…. and an intriguing (as well as creative) topic for a spring science unit.
After observing, dissecting, analyzing, and categorizing flowers with your students and sharing books like those shown above, you may want to provide opportunities for some creative projects like the flower crafts found on the following sites:
Kaboose.com – tissue paper flowers
TLC Family – paper flowers
Origami Fun – origami lilies and other flowers
