Montessori Inspired Blackberry Life Cycle Activities

If there is any sort of activity that I kind of geek out about, it is definitely presenting anything SCIENCE, but especially life cycles! There is just something so beautiful and exciting about studying life and how something grows. This summer, one of the new themes we covered was the life cycle of a blackberry! [...]

Worm Life Cycle

Recently, I have discovered that my children and I are pretty into gardening! We have purchased many interesting seeds and have started experimenting and testing things in the garden. Naturally, I am loving tying this into our learning activities. We have been studying our worm life cycle again to learn more about healthy soil and [...]

Green Bean Life Cycle Hands-on Activities

Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? Even though I do not live in the United States anymore, Thanksgiving is still a holiday I like to celebrate with my family. One of the dishes I always make is a green bean casserole. To be honest, it's that dish that inspired me to create our green bean life cycle [...]

Corn Life Cycle Hands-on Learning Activities

Autumn is such a fun time to explore corn. Today, I want to share our corn life cycle activities with you! My students love using the spinner and hands-on activities to learn about corn. It's a great time of year for this theme since children are able to see fields of corn growing in rural [...]

Montessori Life Cycle of a Christmas Tree

Does your little one love Christmas? It's all just so exciting! This year, I have been trying to limit the number of learning activities I present.

Strawberry life cycle printables

I love studying plants and life cycles during this time of year! We have a small garden with lots of strawberries, currants, blackberries, and well, pretty much every berry ever. And not so small. I'll do a tour one of these days, but it's pretty amazing to get delicious fresh fruits from our backyard. The [...]

Green bean life cycle printables

We have recently started preparing out garden for spring. Because we are still (yes, still!) working on our home, our backyard is still home to never ending construction materials. So we started working on the front yard. While, it's not the ideal place to plant our veggies, we did start. Y is just so enthusiastic [...]

Butterfly life cycle printables

Y has really enjoyed our Butterfly Life Cycle printables. He actually was around while I was printing them and was very enthusiastic about getting them printed and onto the shelves. I am typically pretty careful about being a bit secretive about preparing the works. I like to get them up as a sort of surprise so [...]
