Endangered species plant pots

Endangered species plant pots

This creative and practical activity is aimed at primary school children, who will require the help of an adult for scissor use. Children will select an endangered species from Arkive.org, to recreate in plant pot form. They must read about the habitat where the animal lives and recreate this using another plastic pot as a drip tray for excess water. The students will then fill the pots with soil and plant their seeds. As well as teaching students about the environments in which endangered species live, the importance of reusing or recycling plastic can also be highlighted throughout, as an additional educational element. Students can also learn about the life cycle of plants while their seeds grow into seedlings, then fully grown plants. Find out more about endangered species: arkive.org/endangered-species/ Find out more about plastics and their effect on the environment: www.arkive.org/c/marine-plastics Find out more about plants: arkive.org/education/teaching-resources-7-11#resourcePlants

Pumpkin Craft  ::  Pumpkin Life Cycle

Pumpkin Craft :: Pumpkin Life Cycle

Pumpkins, Pumpkins and more Pumpkins A creative way to teach about Pumpkins and Pumpkin life cycles. Your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these unique Pumpkin Lanterns. Paper lanterns are great for developing fine motor skills such as: folding, coloring, painting, gluing, cutting, listening and following directions. Embedded within this Pumpkin project there are several activities to extend your students learning about the Pumpkins. These units are designed in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students…so many possibilities. This unit can be approached in several ways. Either as a quick Pumpkin craft that will take about 90 minutes to complete. Or as long, in-depth project that will take upwards of a week or two to complete. In my classroom, creating the basic lantern will take my kiddos about 90 minutes (coloring and assembly). Adding on Pumpkins or Pumpkin life cycle cut-outs will take an additional 45 to 60 minute block of time. I normally have my Kiddos write about each life cycle stage or facts about Pumpkins or Pumpkin varieties on the back of the cut-outs. Included: • Printed Pumpkin lantern templates • Numerous Pumpkin trims and Life Cycle trims ��� Pumpkin Cut- outs….check out the preview to see everything included! ***************************************************************************** Keywords: Pumpkin Craft :: Pumpkin Activity :: Pumpkin Life Cycle :: Pumpkin Life Cycle Craft :: Jack O’lantern :: :: Paper Lantern :: 3D Craft :: Pumpkin Theme :: Ms Lil :: Pumpkin Decoration :: Pumpkin Wind sock ::
