4 Easy and Quick Parts of a Plant Activities: A Simple Plant Project - 1. Simple 3D Parts of a Plant Craft – Pull together a simple but meaningful craft as students create a 3D flower using items you probably already have around the classroom. Label the parts of the flower to review plant parts.
This is a wonderful flower matching game. For preschoolers, this would need to be a small group activity instead of an individual activity so that reading help could be given to the child. This is a great way to re-enforce the parts of a plant.
