The best part about observing nature as part of your science curriculum is it is easy to adapt lessons for different aged kids.
Young children can use the guided worksheets while older kids will benefit from the graphic organizer because it lets them draw their own illustrations.
Within the printable pack are two different versions of the parts of a tree worksheet.
One is black and white which young kids will love to color in using their favorite art supplies. While the second version is in full color.
Both have lines that point to the different parts along with a word bank. Depending on the age of your child, they can even cut out the words then paste them down in the correct spot.
Older kids or young children who are writing can use the words as reference then write the labels themselves next to the lines.
Once your child is ready to draw their own illustrations, blank graphic organizers are wonderful learning tools.
Similar to two column notes, your kids can write the vocabulary words on the left side of the worksheet. Then the definition on the right hand side. Instead of definitions they can write down important facts.
Illustrations can be drawn under the vocabulary term or within the box on the right. I personally, include the illustration with the word then use the right hand side for notes.
Pair this worksheet with a few educational books about trees for an engaging low prep literacy lesson!
