Parts of a Root


We are still working our way through the botany album and this week I introduced the parts of a root.


I pulled out a few vegetables we had in the house to examine and printed out some cards for nomenclature.

I have also really started to love these booklets. The older ones get great writing practice and the younger ones reinforce the new learning through drawing or tracing.

Montessori Printshop has Dicot Root Cards and a Root Nomenclature Booklet.

The cards pictured are from Karen Tylers Botany Album.

Literature Extensions:

Stone Soup by Anne Mcgovern and Stone Soup by Marcia Brown
