6 Free Garden Activities for Kids
From measuring plants to labeling plants of a flower, these free garden activities are the perfect addition to your lessons about plants and flowers.
Caterpillar Garden Poem for Kids
As you teach the kids about flowers and plants, you can talk to them about what they can find in a garden. Create a graphic organizer recording all of their responses to “What belongs in a garden?”. Most likely, one of the kids will mention butterflies. Once they mention butterflies, this is your perfect opportunity to integrate lessons about caterpillars and butterflies.
To bridge your garden activities and butterfly life cycle activities, use this free Caterpillar Garden poem.
From descriptive language to position words and counting, this poem is great for kindergarten, first grade, and second grade standards.
When you sign up to the Little Learning Corner email crew, you’ll be take directly to your free printable poem which can also be used digitally for remote learning. Then, you’ll want to run and check your email, because I’ll send you another great freebie. You’ll get a free poetry guide that included a weekly schedule to teach poem of the week, get parents involved with a “Lucky Listener” printable, and much more. It’s my way of saying thank you for getting kids excited to read using poetry!
After you print out your free flowers and plants activities, share the video below with your kids. This Caterpillar Garden read aloud will be a great addition to your shared reading activities. My daughter reads the poem, pointing to the words, to inspire other kids to love poetry as much as she does.
