Parts of an Apple

Parts of an Apple

Montessori 3-Part Cards for Parts of an Apple Suggested by a teacher client, I created the Parts of an Apple cards for your Botany area. There are actually two sets of cards in this file. One set features the common terms for the parts that the child may already be familiar. The second set features the scientific nomenclatures. You will also receive cards with all of the nomenclatures written in cursive. If you use cursive in your classroom, the children can match the cursive label to the proper cards to help with writing. Finally, I have included two different types of apple illustrations for booklet making… The first is black and white line, but does not match the photo. However, it may be easier for the children to discenrn the parts. The second is the grayscale photo that I used for the cards.

10 common, safe -for-children houseplants are featured printed folder for the cards instructions To make, simply print on card stock, cut apart and laminate if so desired. Just as an aside, my first set of houseplant cards were made from four copies of a book on houseplants. I cut the pictures out, rubber cemented them onto index cards and hand wrote the labels. That was long before personal computers and the internet! Those cards lasted a very long time and I’m sure I have a few left somewhere, but I had a much better time making these. Do be careful about potentially poisonous houseplants. Thanks so much for considering my work. Mary
