I collected samples of the different types of plants and used them to discuss the classification process.
studied the differences in the leaf shape and vein pattern
We also identified a few flowers we found in the garden (please excuse the dandelion - the girls seem to think they are a wonderful flower and I regularly get bunches shoved into a pot as a gift)
We used the monocot/dicot exercise from Montessori for everyone which comes with a great explanation of the differences between monocots and dicots.
and they finished by writing up their notebook pages.
