Project Instructions

  1. With a marker, draw a line across the bottom third of the felt, creating the "top soil" for the diagram.
  2. Draw each of the four phases of the plant cycle (seed, sprout, bud, flower) with pencil across the "top soil" line from left to right.
  3. Glue the different colors of yarn to the pencil lines and fill in the leaves and petals with yarn as well. (A large knot works well for the seed.)
  4. Label the parts of the plant at each phase as well as the names of the phases with markers.
  5. Write "Parts of a Plant" or desired title across the top of the felt.

Craft Notes

Adult supervision is required at all times.

Background

Some new plants are generated from seeds; some from bulbs. Have students (in pairs) examine a flower and name its parts. After studying the life cycle of a flowering plant, how it grows, how it is pollinated, etc., students will illustrate their understanding by creating a drawing using yarn. They will "draw" the seed, the young shoot, the parts of the flower, and the full grown blossom using different colored yarn.
