Connecting children with the great outdoors is so important. In fact, nature inspires creativity in children and allows children to use all of their senses. Are you a fan of nature studies? If you have been here for awhile you know how much we love nature. It’s become a big part of our daily lives and I truly feel like the kids are happier and healthier for getting outside and exploring nature. I hope you love the Montessori botany activities we are sharing with you today.

Montessori Botany Activities – Flower Activities for Kids

I am sure a lot of you know what Botany is already, but this is a time to share and a time to learn. Botany might be new to some people and I think starting with the definition really helps give a vision of what we are doing.

Botany, also called plant science or plant biology, is the science of plant life and a branch of biology. A botanist or plant scientist is a scientist who specializes in this field of study. – Wikipedia

Montessori Botany

Let’s get started!

botany books for Kids

Botany Books for Kids

 We started our Botany study with a few of our favorite plant books:

A Seed is Sleepy

The Magic School Bus Plants Seeds

How a Seed Grows

The Carrot Seed

Oh Say Can You Seed?

They also took 20 minutes to watch The Magic School Bus Goes to Seed (it’s free on Netflix)

A couple of great books for parents to be able to easily guide your children along with nature study learning is Pocketful of Pinecones and The Nature Connection.

Reading books, working with our botany cards and watching The Magic School Bus really opened up the world of Botany for the children. We are now becoming botanist in training.

 This was such a wonderful hands-on activity. After the children had used their Botany parts of a plant 3-part cards. They were ready for a wonderful experience with labeling the flowers that they were growing. Using real flowers is always a nice way to tie in any nature activity.

 Don’t forget to pick up a nature journal. My children each have one and absolutely love to use them regularly.

Our favorites are from eeboo, they are so pretty and glow in the dark. Take them with you on nature walks and trips to the park for an impromptu drawing session. Nature Journals are wonderful keepsakes and homeschool portfolios.
