Emergent Project: Seeds and Flowers

This morning during group time Ms Nerissa was explaining to the children about the life cycle of an apple. Ms Nerissa explained that cycle one is apple seeds being planted. Cycle two a seedling grows form the ground. Cycle three the seedling grows into a tree. Cycle four flower buds grow on the tree. Cycle five flower buds start blooming into flowers. Cycle six small green apples (baby apples) start to grow. Cycle seven small green apples grow into large red apples. Ms Nerissa then showed the children the core of the apple with the seeds inside, she explained that we can use those seeds to plant and start the cycle all over again. Ms Nerissa finished the discussion by asking the children what they leant about the life cycle of an apple. Maya learnt that small green apples are baby apples and large red apples are adult apples. Georgie learnt that flowers grow on the apple tree first followed by apples. Amelie learnt that we plant seeds in the ground. Maxwell learnt that seedlings grow into trees.
