Kids will love to learn more about pinecones with this printable activity pack!
Since we live in Wyoming, we have a TON of pine trees and so.. lots of pinecones! My kids ask endless questions about them, so hopefully, this packet helps answer some of those (I learned something too!)
What’s included in this printable pinecone unit study
This seven page black and white PDF is formatted for 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper and has a mix of fun facts and games!
Pinecone facts for kids
Learn the various way pine cone seeds are spread and learn the full cucle of the pine seeds with an easy to understand graphic!
Color and cut out the cards that represent the various stages of the pinecone seed to get more familiar with it all!
Now practice by labeling the lifecycle, matching and more!
Using the two cut out activities, kids can practice labeling both the pinecone lifecycle and matching up the various names to the pictures on the sheet!
I plan on laminating a couple of the labeling activities once spring hits and trying to find as many stages of pinecones as we can!
