Experiment: Make A Plant Collage
Grades: K – 7
Plants are so much a part of our daily lives that we often don’t give them much thought! In this project children will go through magazines and find items made from plants. Once these are found the children can make a collage of all the items they found. This is a fun, easy activity to teach kids that plants are everywhere!
Time: 15-30 mins
Help students look through the magazines with a critical eye. Students may pass over many items made from plants. There are plants in more items than we expect! We use plants for useful products such as medicines, paper products, cosmetics, spices, building materials and fuels. We eat plants and everything we eat also eats plants. Without plants we would not survive!
