What Are These???

Yesterday, as I was on a walk, and I came across these objects.  They brought back wonderful memories from my childhood; we used to look for these, throw them up in the air and watch them as they propelled back to Earth.  Look around your house; can you find any of these?  As you look at the pictures below, think back to when we studied plants and how these relate to what you learned.  Think carefully, and then give us your ideas about the questions below!

Using several of the following words, explain what the pictures, what they are, where they came from, and what will they do in the future?
  1. Flowering
  2. Nonflowering
  3. Seeds
  4. Flowers
  5. Cones
  6. Spores

  13. Hello there! How nice to have a reply! I told my students I had published our blog and they have been eager to find someone to collaborate with us!
    I am Miss Anne from St. Andrew’s in Buenos Aires, Argentina and I started a Values Blog in year 4 :
    http://valuesmatter-year4.blogspot.com/

    Thank you so much for your blog comment. I'm sure the kids will be incredibly happy to read it!

    The truth is we are working with this blog in three 4th grade groups (9 year olds mostly) and English is their second language in general.
    We decided to combine our Literacy unit (we will be reading Charlotte's Web) to our PSE (Personal and Social Education) work. Our aim is for them to discuss and reflect upon values. Of course we believe this will be richer if the work is collaborative.

    I tend to post a song, quote, picture, video, etc once a week and we work on it and discuss it in class. We expect the kids to comment on the posts and share their views. Our aim is for the kids in year four to map their own values by the end of this unit (midyear here in Argentina/end of the year to you in the states!). I guess in the end we would be doing something like the "promise" video you share in your blog (beautiful, by the way!).

    I look forward to hearing from you! Let me know your ideas, suggestions and of course, I hope you are interested!!!
