I love the look and idea of Montessori botany puzzles and nomenclature cards. And I’m really trying to incorporate more Montessori elements into the activities I do with M. Autumn is on its way (many people aren’t excited about that, something I just don’t understand. Autumn is glorious and I love it. It’s not autumn’s fault that winter follows close behind!) and I know we’ll be talking a lot about trees and leaves… so I whipped up these little nomenclature cards for trees and leaves.
The idea is to print two sets, then match them up while learning the names of the various parts. Each card has a different area highlighted in color, and there is one non-highlighted card titled “leaf” (or “tree”).
Eventually we’ll use these as 3-part cards too, and I’ll cut the labels from the second set of cards so M can try matching up the words in addition to the pictures. For more info on how to use 3-part cards, see this great blog post.
Of course I’m sharing my little creations! They were very simple to make and not too time consuming. I hope to make more printables along these lines in the weeks ahead. The links for these are below:
