A highly engaging, interactive activity to teach Kindergarten and First grade students about plants is with this Plants Lapbook!
This lapbook includes resources to teach all about plants. Read the book suggestions included and work together to explore the plant life cycle, plants’ needs, seed dispersal, parts of a plant and plants that we eat. See how to put the lapbook together and get book ideas on the blog.

Have your learners color and cut the cover page. Fold a large piece of construction paper or file folder where the ends go to the center. Glue the cover page on the top and cut down the middle after the glue dries.
