A Pre-K student at James Bean School draws an amaryllis flower in his nature journal. Over five weeks, the four-year-olds in Ms. Tonge’s classes have observed this bulb grow. In this project, they learn about the life cycle of a flowering bulb and parts of a plant. Children talk about what they see, noticing color, line, and shape, then draw what they see. These young scientists work carefully, with awe and wonder towards the natural world.
