Response Writing: Make an Accordion Book

  • Use a sheet of recycled paper to make an accordion book.
  • Fold a paper strip back and forth. You should have about five sections. Trim the end of the last section so that all the strips are the same size.

  • Write how each plant or animal helps living things.

Hands-On Activity: Examine Plants and Seeds
