Thank you for visiting my page and I hope that you gained lots of information that you can use to teach your students about the life cycle of a plant. I know that making a brochure sounds like a hard concept for first graders but surprisingly they do really well with this concept and really enjoy making their own brochure. I like to bring in brochures for them to see as I am explaining what a brochure looks like, how to fold, and what information is needed. Always keep in mind that they can't grow if we don't water them so don't fear trying new concepts!
