Kinder Cherry Blossom Trees

This lesson took two 30-minute class sessions. We discussed attributes of Japanese cherry blossom trees and the parts of a tree. Using recycled pieces of grocery bags the kindergarteners cut up strips and then "built" a tree starting with the trunk, making sure to incorporate interesting branches.

After crumpling up various pink tissue paper pieces and adhering them with glue stick the students added on clouds of white tissue paper and practiced their angle cutting skills by cutting green construction paper scraps for the grassy ground.
