Miss Rumphius

One of the FIAR books we did recently, in conjunction with learning about plants, was Miss Rumphius.
We did some vocabulary cards and you drew the meaning of the words on colorful paper

We also did art, using mixed media, and of course, our fingers!

We talked about visiting Faraway Places like Miss Rumphius did, and colored a Mother of Pearl shell, just like the one we have.

We didn't have any lupine seeds, but we looked at pictures of them, and planted some other kinds of seeds.

We were also learning about Earth Day and conservation/reuse/reduce/recycle, and so we decided to use some old egg cartons and leftover plastic Easter eggs as starter planters.

And then, a couple of weeks later, they got big enough to transplant!
