Week 10 (last week!)

Pollination

Protecting Pollinators

  • We have learned so much about pollinators together! We’ve learned that pollinators visit flowers to turn them into fruits and seeds that we eat, we’ve learned lots about flowers and the different parts they have, we’ve learned that there are many types of pollinators – not just bumblebees, we’ve learned about all the amazing things that bees do, and we’ve learned how to plant a garden that pollinators will love.
  • Now we want to talk about just one more thing: what we can do to protect pollinators. Sadly, pollinators are facing some challenges right now, but the good news is, there’s lots that we can do to keep them healthy!
  • Activity: Watch this video for a review of why pollinators are so important, and to learn about some of the issues facing pollinators and what we can do to help them. Then, try to think of three things you can do to protect pollinators. You can use ideas from the video, your own brain, other people in your home, and past weeks of Pollination lessons!
  • Bonus Activity: Take the Pollinator Pledge!

Plant Parts

Let’s Review!

  • Wow! 10 weeks all done. What have we learned?
  • Can you name all 6 plant parts?
  • Our summer challenge? See if you can find plant parts in your home, in your meals, in your walks, and everywhere you go.
  • For those of you who want to dig a little deeper, every week from now on we will be offering an optional outdoor Plant Parts Bonus Challenge. 

¡Revisemos!

  • ¡Guau! 10 semanas completadas. ¿Qué hemos aprendido?
  • ¿Puedes nombrar las seis partes de la planta?
  • ¿Nuestro reto de verano? Vea si puede encontrar las partes de la planta en su casa, en su comida, en sus paseos, y por todas partes donde vayas.
  • Para aquellos de ustedes que quieran profundizar un poco más, cada semana en adelante ofreceremos un Desafío de bonificación de piezas de plantas al aire libre opcional.

Recipes

Over the past 10 weeks we have explored quite a few different types of recipes. For our final week we want to send you off with a variety of recipes to try throughout the summer.  They are designed by our friends at Food Corps, which is another organization that works to promote farms, gardens and healthful eating. We trust you like these recipes and have a wonderful summer!

Farm Update

For our final farm update, we’re highlighting all the cool stuff going on at Topaz Farm! Not only does Topaz have a huge, beautiful farm to explore, they also have a really amazing farm marketplace. Everything they sell at their market is local – they have everything from fresh produce, to meat and dairy products, different types of jerky, canned goods, honey, and so much more. Oh, and did we mention that their very own chefs are making fresh sandwiches, salads, and baked goods? Now that Topaz is officially open seven days a week, we definitely recommend checking them out!

And if you want to spend even more time on the farm… we still have a few spots open for our farm camp week August 3rd-7th, which will be held for the first time ever on Topaz Farm! Click here for more info.

See you on the farm 🙂

Week 9

Pollination

Pollinator Garden

  • Last week we learned about the important facets of a pollinator friendly garden. This week we will apply all of our knowledge to design an insect pollinator and flower for our pollinator.
  • Activity: Use this guide to design your insect. You can design your insect by:
    • Drawing and coloring an insect
      • You will need a piece of paper and some crayons, markers, or colored pencils
    • Making an insect out of natural objects
      • Go outside and find items to make the insect parts
    • Designing a lego insect
    • Using household objects arranged in the shape of an insect
  • Activity 2: Design a flower for your insect using this guide. You will need scissors, glue, and paper. Make a flower that goes with your insect.

Plant Parts

Labeling Plants

  • This week we have a really fun game for you to try. Do you remember your plant parts? In this game, we will be labeling the different parts of the plant. Drag and drop the plant parts. You will see these words: flower, stem, root, fruit, seed, and bud. The bud isn’t something we talked about as a plant part, but it is in fact part of the plant. Do you know what a bud is? The bud of a plant is the baby flower inside a casing. What does each plant part do? Can you tell a friend?
  • For those of you who want to dig a little deeper, every week from now on we will be offering an optional outdoor Plant Parts Bonus Challenge. This week we have indoor and outdoor plant parts scavenger hunts for you to try out!

Plantas de etiquetado

  • Esta semana tenemos un juego muy divertido para que lo pruebes. ¿Recuerdas las partes de tu planta? En este juego, etiquetaremos las diferentes partes de la planta. El juego dirá el nombre de una parte de la planta y debes hacer clic en la parte de la planta que coincida. Verá estas palabras: flor, tallo, raíz, fruto y semilla. ¿Qué hace cada parte de la planta? ¿Puedes decirle a un amigo?
  • Para aquellos de ustedes que quieran profundizar un poco más, cada semana en adelante ofreceremos un Desafío de bonificación de piezas de plantas al aire libre opcional. ¡Esta semana tenemos búsquedas del tesoro de piezas de plantas de interior y exterior para que pruebes!

Farm Update

Topaz Farm is opening!

  • We are so excited to share that Topaz Farm will be opening its doors to the public this Saturday, May 30th! We got to spend the day on the farm last Friday helping them plant flowers around the entrance to the farm. We had such a good time hanging out with Topaz staff and being out on the farm. Click here to see photos of the flower planting process!
  • And don’t forget to visit Topaz’s website to read about all the cool things you’ll be able to do when you visit them on the farm.

 

Week 8

Pollination

Pollinator Garden

  • Last week we talked about butterflies and how they are important and very visual pollinators for all over the world. This week we will learn about how to make a garden pollinator friendly.
  • Activity: Use the information and guidelines below to draw your own pollinator friendly garden. Remember that native plants in your location are the best!  If you have access to gardens, go outside and observe the pollinators that buzz, crawl, and fly around the garden. Think about how you can best support them in your garden’s design.
    • Guidelines for your garden (try to use as many as possible):
      • Have a water source
      • The greater variety of plants you have, the more pollinators you will attract. Use the links below of Native Plants and Favorite Plants of Pollinators to choose plants for your garden.
      • Have nesting materials for birds and insects that could include: flowerpots with drainage holes bottom-up on the ground; small piles of twigs and brush; mud puddles.
    • Want to see what we came up with? Click below for examples of pollinator gardens we drew at home.

Plant Parts Coloring

  • For this week we will be doing an online coloring activity. Please pick a flower that stands out to you to color! Did you know that flowers help the plant reproduce? (Along with seeds and fruits.) As you are coloring your flower, can you identify any other plant parts in the image? Do you see a root, stem, leaf, fruit, or seed?
  • For those of you who want to dig a little deeper, every week from now on we will be offering an optional outdoor Plant Parts Bonus Challenge. This week we have an indoor scavenger hunt and an outdoor scavenger hunt for you to try out!

Coloración de partes de plantas

  • Para esta semana, vamos a hacer una actividad de colorear. Por favor, escoge una flor que resalte para colorear. Sabías que las flores ayudan a la planta a reproducirse? Junto con las semillas y las frutas. Cuando estés coloreando su flor, puedes identificar algunas otras partes de la planta en la imagen? Ves una raíz, un tallo, una hoja, o una semilla?
  • Para aquellos de ustedes que quieran profundizar un poco más, cada semana en adelante ofreceremos un Desafío de bonificación de piezas de plantas al aire libre opcional.

Sauvie Island Growers

  • Before our move to Topaz Farm, we operated on the grounds of Sauvie Island Growers (formerly Sauvie Island Organics). We are so thankful for our time spent on this awesome farm. This week, we would love for you to check out some of the amazing things going on at Sauvie Island Growers.
  • Sauvie Island Growers has lots of delicious veggies that they will be harvesting and sending out to restaurants and stores this week, here are a few of our favorites:
    • Salad Greens, Bok Choy, Kale, Chard, Oregano, Sage
  • Activity: Visit the Sauvie Island Grower’s Partnering Restaurants page to see which restaurants are using their produce. Then, click on the restaurant logos to navigate to their websites, and see if you can find any of the veggies listed above on their menus!
    • See if you can find three restaurants that are using Sauvie Island Growers’ produce in their menus this week. We think it’s pretty cool to see that restaurants in our community are cooking with delicious, local produce.
  • We continue to remind everyone to see what Topaz Farm is up to through their Topaz Farm Weekly Updates.

 

Week 7

Pollination

Butterflies

  • Last week we learned about native plants and their native pollinators and how they are important to the ecosystem. This week we will talk about one pollinator, the butterfly. Butterflies and moths are extremely important, and varied. 
  • Check out either one (or both) of the videos below on the differences between butterflies and moths!

  • Activity: Design your own butterfly. When designing your own, think about where your butterfly lives, what plants it visits, how they are symmetrical and how the rest of the insect looks.
    • Something is symmetrical when it is the same on both sides. A shape has symmetry if a central dividing line (a mirror line) can be drawn on it, to show that both sides of the shape are exactly the same.

 

  • Optional Activity: Follow the link below to go to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History virtual tour. Navigate to the butterfly hall (on the 2nd floor) and “walk” around. Learn about butterflies. While in the museum feel free to explore, but definitely check out the insect and butterfly sections.

Plant Parts Brain Teasers

  • Let’s get more familiar with some words we have been talking about every week! Just like when you searched for plant parts in your kitchen, now you can look for them in this word search. In the word search, you will find these words: flower, stem, root, leaf, seed, fruit, sun, water, soil, and Earth. Some of these words aren’t plant parts but work together to make the plant grow big and strong. Can you think of how all of these things work together?
  • Building off of what we’ve learned, and for a lil’ challenge, try this crossword! This crossword will consist of all the plant parts you know so well. Click the boxes and type in your answers to the questions that pop up. Did you know them all? Did you learn more about the plant parts?
  • For those of you who want to dig a little deeper, every week from now on we will be offering an optional outdoor Plant Parts Bonus Challenge. Visit our Plant Parts Bonus Challenge page for all the info you need to do this week’s activity!

Rompecabezas de partes de plantas

  • ¡Vamos a familiarizarnos más con algunas palabras hemos estado hablando de cada semana! Como cuando buscabas a las partes de la planta en su cocina, ahora se puede buscar en esta sopa de letras. En la sopa de letras, encontrarás estas palabras: flor, tallo, raíz, hoja, semilla, fruta, sol, agua, y huerto. Algunos de estas palabras no son las partes de la planta pero funcionan juntos para hacer que la planta crezca grande y fuerte. ¿Puedes pensar en cómo todas de estas cosas trabajan juntos?
  • A partir de lo que hemos aprendido, intenta este crucigrama! Este crucigrama consistirá en todas de las partes de la planta que conoces tan bien. Haga clic en las cajas y escribe sus respuestas para las preguntas que aparecen. ¿Ya los conocías todos? ¿Aprendiste más sobre las partes de la planta?
  • Para aquellos de ustedes que quieran profundizar un poco más, cada semana en adelante ofreceremos un Desafío de bonificación de piezas de plantas al aire libre opcional. ¡Visite nuestra pagina Desafio de bonificacion de piezas de la planta para obtener toda la información que necesita para realizar la actividad de esta semana!

  • We continue to remind everyone to see what Topaz Farm is up to through their Topaz Farm Weekly Updates.

 

Week 6

Pollination

Oregon Native Plants and Native Pollinators

  • Last week we learned about the flower and its important reproductive parts. This week we will learn about the different native plants to the pacific northwest, what makes a plant “native,” and how to identify some of the common Oregon native plants.
  • Activity: Follow along with the presentation below. It teaches about native plants and how they work with native pollinators. It includes an activity of identifying native plants using a dichotomous key, while thinking about what pollinators we know might like this native plant.
  • Presentation: Native Plants and Pollinators

Farm Update

Create Your Own Garden

  • The folks at Topaz Farm are busy getting all sorts of fruits and veggies planted right now. Did you know that there are certain times of year that are best to plant certain foods? For instance, the month of May is a great time to plant lettuce because it is warm outside, but not too warm. But the weather in November or December would not be such a good time to plant lettuce outdoors, because the weather would be too cold.
  • Activity: Create your own garden. The cool thing about farming and gardening is that you get to choose what you want to plant, and that’s exactly what we want you to do this week! The link below has a list of fruits and veggies that should be planted in May, June, and July. Can you pick out 3 plants for each month that you would plant if you were creating your own garden?
  • Bonus: Check out Topaz Farm’s Facebook and Instagram pages, and see if you can spot any of the plants on the list!

 

 

Week 5

Pollination

  • Last week we learned about bees and how they are a vital pollinator nearly everywhere. This week we will learn about the different parts of a flower involved in pollination. The anther produces the pollen, and the stigma collects the pollen to fertilize seeds. 
  • You have 2 options for completing this week’s activity:
    • Option 1: Watch the video on the dissection, draw a flower, and answer the questions below.
    • Option 2: Go outside and ask permission to collect a flower. This may be asking for permission from the land and from a parent. If you pick a wildflower, make sure there are at least 10 flowers in the ground for each you pick.
      • Choose a larger flower, such as a rhododendron, but any will work. Follow along with the video, and dissect the flower. Note the flower’s parts. Since this is a dissection, please only do this option with parental observation. Answer the questions below as you go.
  • Video: Flower Dissection – Reproduction in flowering plants
  • Here’s a flower diagram to help you draw and label flower parts!

    Questions: 

    1. What color are the petals? How many are there?
    2. Does your flower have male and female parts?
    3. How many anthers?
    4. How many stigmas are present?
    5. Is there pollen? What color is the pollen?

Week 3

Pollination

  • Last week we learned about what happens when pollinators visit flowers (they turn them into fruits and seeds!).
  • This week we’ll learn about other ways that plants can be pollinated. Not all plants need to be visited by a pollinator to be turned into fruits or seeds. Some plants are self-pollinated, some are pollinated by the wind, and others don’t need to be pollinated at all.
  • Watch this short video for a quick look into what happens when plants are pollinated by the wind.
  • Activity: Now you’re ready to find out how your favorite plants are pollinated with our matching activity: How is this food pollinated?

Plant Parts Out My Window (You can also do this activity outside!)

  • Look out a window in your apartment, duplex or house: Can you see any plants?
  • If you do not see any plants, what could you imagine growing outside of your window if you could add some plants? If you see lots of tall buildings, how might you create a garden on the side of the building?
  • Draw a picture of how your window view might look if there were plants growing on the sidewalks, on the rooftops, and alongside the walls of the buildings. What sort of things would you like to see growing? Flowers? Fruit? Trees? Use as much detail as you can in your drawing, add color if you want.
  • If you do see plants, what is it that you see? Maybe some trees, flowers, bushes, or a garden? Take some time to draw at least one of the plants you see, add lots of detail to your drawing, add color if you want.

Partes de la planta fuera de tu ventana. (¡Puedes hacer esta actividad afuera!)

  • Mira por una ventana en tu apartamento, dúplex, o casa: Puedes ver algunas plantas?
  • Si no ves algunas plantas, que te puedes imaginar creciendo afuera de tu ventana si podrías añadir algunas plantas. ¿Si ves muchos edificios altos, cómo  harías crear un jardín al lado del edificio?
  • Haz un dibujo de cómo tu vista de la ventana sería si había plantas creciendo en las aceras, en los techos, y junto a los lados de los edificios. ¿Cuales son los tipos de plantas que te gustaría ver crecer? Flores? Fruta? Árboles? Usa tanto detalle como te puedes en tu dibujo e incorpora color si quieres.
  • ¿Si ves plantas, qué es lo que ves? ¿Quizás algunos árboles, flores, arbustos, un jardín? Toma algún tiempo para dibujar por lo menos, una de las plantas que ves, añade mucho detalle a tu dibujo, e incorpora color si quieres.

  • Can you make a list of all the different pollinators you find on their pages?

 

Week 2

Pollination

  • This week we’re talking about how pollinators help turn flowers into fruits. Pollinators like bees, butterflies, and bats are necessary for many fruits to turn into flowers and seeds – watch the video to see how it works. 
  • Apple life cycle video
  • Activity: Draw a picture of 3 of your favorite fruits, and next week we’ll learn if those fruits are pollinated by animals or by some other method.

Plant Parts

  • Plant Parts In My Meal
  • Think back to what you ate yesterday. Do you think you ate any plant parts? Chances are you did! A lot of times plant parts are ingredients in other foods we eat. So even if you didn’t eat a plant part by itself, plant parts were probably ingredients in something you ate. Try to think of 2 plant parts you ate yesterday, and write what they are and how you ate them in your journal. 
  • Example: I had pizza yesterday. The pizza had two different plant parts in it. 
    • Wheat – wheat is a seed. Wheat is ground into flour, which is used to make pizza crust.
    • Tomatoes – tomatoes are a fruit. Tomatoes are an important ingredient in the pizza sauce.
  • Partes De Plantas En Mi Comida
  • Piensa en lo que comiste ayer. Crees que comiste algunas partes de la planta? Lo más probable es que si lo hizo! Muchas veces las partes de la planta son ingredientes en otra comida que comemos. Incluso si no comiste una planta directamente, las partes de la planta probablemente eran ingredientes en algo que comiste. Trata de pensar en 2 partes de la planta que comiste ayer, y escribe en tu diario cuáles fueron y cómo los comiste.  
  • Ejemplo: Ayer tuve pizza. La pizza tuve dos partes de la planta diferente. 
    • Los Tomates – los tomates son una fruta. Tomates son un ingrediente importante en la salsa de pizza. 
    • El Trigo – el trigo es una semilla. El trigo se muele para hacer la harina, la harina se usa para hacer la masa de la pizza.
