My Primary 1 Lesson 10 handout packet includes

  • Finish the scene handouts- One for flowers and one for a tree. Make it fun by gluing on Fruit Loops as the flowers and real leaves to the tree (go on a walk outside together if it's nice). 
  • Seed packet envelope- Add a seed or two to this envelope for the children to go home and plant. You could also use it to put treasures in as you go on a walk and discover plants, flowers, and trees.
