Magnetic Botany/Anatomy Activities

in All Printables, Cards, Montessori

Thank you for visiting Little Schoolhouse in the Suburbs. Please subscribe and you'll get great homeschool tips sent to your inbox for free!

I use the Maybe Montessori botany puzzles and made (adapted) these:

Magnetic botany charts:  seed, root, fruit, stem parts

Bird labelling:  I altered the image from this site, here.

Whale labelling

Labels for all the charts

To use this material, I print out a blank picture and the labelled one.  I print out a set of labels and back them with magnetic tape.  I put the unlabelled diagram on a dollar store cookie sheet.  I put the “answer sheet” under the stack of trays on the bottom right of the plant area.

*Sorry about the picture quality.  My phone wasn’t cooperating.

We own “real” puzzles for the frog, turtle, and fish, but we didn’t own any for the bird and mammals.

It pulls up on my computer as a word doc. Are you on a mac?

Praise Our Blessed Mother! Another Catholic, homeschool momma! And a Montessorian! I am trying to print your labels to use in our classroom – homeschooling 5 kiddos – but the link does not open anything but a zip file and I can’t find anything in the files. Just connects to the Internet and shows programming and coding. HELP!

Happy Easter!

LOVE your site!!!! Am printing so many things that I am excited to use in our homeschool. We love Montessori and are trying to blend all the things we like (classical, Montessori, Waldorf, etc.) to keep things interesting and joyous. Can you tell me how we can download to our computer some of your printables? We don’t have a color printer and I want to do the plant ID stuff (on the metal cookie sheets) but every time I click on the images, there doesn’t seem to be a way to download so I can go to fedex and print them in color. Thank you!!! Mary
