Plant Bingo – Nilsson

Due to the pouring rain, I went to the municipal greenhouse. I was thinking about how it would be a fun field trip to take students on. It’s within walking distance and on public bus routes of several schools. I made two different levels: emerging reader and elementary.


  1. Kristen, this sounds like a cool activity for the students to do. I like your creative approach to this assignment. Try to weave in a few more botany terms, perhaps flower vs. fruit or root, or stem. Would the greenhouse let you pick flowers, or do the kids all have iPads or other notebooks?

    I like this, too! It would be cool if some of us who have some K-12 classroom experience could share applications with Stefanie. Do you know about the “Dirt Made My Lunch” songs? It is the Banana Slug String Band from Santa Cruz, CA. I have even used some of those songs with middle school because it helps them remember things. One of my faves was “Roots, Stems, Leaves, Fruits, Flowers, and Seeds.”
