Preschool Science: Above-Below Ground

In ED’s preschool science we are still talking about plants and animals. On this day we talked about animals and plant parts that live above or below the ground.

We talked about how some animals like the grub or the cicada live part of their life under the ground, then live another stage above the ground. Some animals shelter under the ground when it is cold (like frogs and turtles). Some animals have their young underground for shelter and protection like groundhogs, rabbits and prairie dogs.

ED did a cutting and pasting project, sorting out where various animals lived.

If you are interested you can download the pictures I used. I created a pdf and uploaded it for anyone who might be interested:

The girls also colored an animal habitat project that we got on sale from Teacher Express (for $1.00) It has picture of the creatures and plants above and below the ground. They didn’t finish the projects but here’s a quick glimpse at what they worked on:

I’ll show you some of the things they did with plants in another day or so.
