FIAR Lapbook for Miss Rumphius

I love, love, love this book. It's one of my favorites. I was really happy to be able to do it with our little K/1 class one Wednesday morning.

Here's the cover

The inside. The little, bitty book in the upper left is "How Seeds Travel"

We talked about how the seeds in the book traveled to the other side of the hill (wind and birds) and then how Miss Rumphius scattered seeds as she walked. It was too cold to that day, but I told the kids that in the spring they'd have to walk through a field in their socks to see what seeds stuck to their socks.

Then we identified 4 different seeds and drew pictures of the flower or fruit each would produce.

Then I printed coloring sheets for the different places Miss Rumphius visited as she traveled.

After we finished coloring, we dampened paper towels and put them in a baggie with a bean seed so we could tape them in a window to watch them grow. A couple of the girls were hopeful they could put the seeds in pots when they got home. It was cute to see them so excited to plant them. I think we all have a bit of spring fever. :)
Another simple but fun lapbook. We were able to read the story and complete the activities in less than 2 hours (snack and play time are part of the schedule, too).
