Kindergarten Seed Art

Hallway display of kindergarten seed art at Blake

One of my kindergarten activities this winter was a seed-to-plant matching activity.  I started off by reading a story, with rhymes and clues to help identify different types of seeds.  (It’s called “What Kinds of Seeds Are These?”)  We then checked out a few relatively common types of seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, corn and bean) and matched them to the plants they come from and grow into.  Then it was time for some art!  Each student got a worksheet where they coloured the four different plants, copied the names of the plants, and then glued the seeds under the corresponding pictures.  A couple of the teachers posted the art for all to see, so I thought I’d share some photos I took of those displays.

    Very cool Elin! Excellent artwork by the children. There is nothing like children’s art.
