Homeschool Workshop: Parts of the Flower
Homeschool workshops are easy to host! You can host them at home with siblings or neighbors, with a homeschool co-op, or even a community meeting place. We had a wonderful time at Milestone Family Solutions studying the parts of a flower. We offered a fully inclusive environment, blending ages 3-12 and incorporating neuro-diversity (all learning abilities welcome).
Here is the outline we used -- I hope it inspires your next homeschool workshop!
PARTS OF THE FLOWER
Remember in an inclusive environment, some of your students may not want to participate, and that is just fine. One of my favorite things about leading workshops with such unique kiddos is to give them a loose outline, and just see what they come up with -- it is almost always something amazing!
- VOCABULARY: Parts of a flower overview (hold up a model of a flower or watch an online video to get children introduced to the concepts/terminology) Here are a few ideas:
- SCIENCE: Parts of a flower worksheets, here is the outline we used, but you can find many others online
- DISCOVERY: Dissecting flowers (I handed out magnifying glasses, and a bunch of flowers to each student to explore, dissect, and inspect)
- ART CREATIVE: Flower arrangements/sculptures (we used floral foam and flowers to create our masterpieces)
We are so grateful to Milestone Family Solutions for having us to host our homeschool workshop. If you are in Las Vegas or Henderson, and are interested in inclusive learning environments, please contact Staci Frazier at Milestone Family Solutions
