With Kindergarten, I was working on building onto previous lessons. We did apples and apple life cycles a few weeks ago when they were doing an apple unit in the classes. Then, we talked about bees and pollination and related that back to the apples. This week, we talked about pumpkins and their life cycle to compare with apples and how bees help them too. At their tables, students each drew a part of the life cycle and we connected them together to make the whole cycle at their table. Here are a couple of them. One did seeds, flower, pumpkin, and the other showed seeds, flower, pumpkin, jack-o-lantern.
