We Are Scientists!

  • The kindergarten students of KBu created this collage book as a culmination of their learning about the life cycle of a plant. First, they learned how to make observations and record information. KBu had two parents; a biologist and chemist come into the classroom to help them learn more about making observations. They used their five senses to observe things like a flower and a bee’s leg. They drew pictures and/or wrote sentences about what we observed. The students grew plants (cucumbers, peas, radishes) in the classroom and made observations to help support their learning about the plant life cycle. They had worms in the classroom to learn more about their role in helping plants grow. The students observed how worms create tunnels in the soil and what they need to survive. They read many non-fiction and fiction books as a class to learn about plants and worms. For their final project, they learned about the elements of a collage. They created a book on the life cycle of a plant in this collage style.
