We started our plant unit today.  We started a bit later than I had originally planned, but they were just so excited about our moon study that I just went with it.  Today, we talked about the parts of a flower and labeled the parts.  They noticed that the flower on my anchor chart was a diagram which of course is a great connection to our nonfiction conventions that they learned at the very beginning of the school year.  You can see our anchor chart below.  I used paint strip samples to label the parts.  I'm totally obsessed with these things.   Pretty soon they're going to start charging me for them at the store. I better give it a rest!  My students made their own flowers and labeled the parts.  The petals were made with scrapbook paper.
