I am linking up with Stephanie of Forever in 5th Grade for Show and Tell Tuesday.
After reading a story about a boat sinking. I challenged the students to create a boat that would carry the most bears across the water with out sinking.
Since we were working on a plant unit, I really wanted to reinforce the vocabulary of the parts of the plants so we did this labeling project. I used white yarn for the roots, green tissue paper for the leaves, a green strip of foam for the stem, and a water-colored coffee filter for the flower.
