Life Cycle of a Christmas Tree: 3-D Life Cycle of a Conifer


It's the most wonderful time of the year and the time of the year and Christmas tree farmers in the NC mountains are sharing their wonderful Christmas trees with all around. I love teaching about the life cycle of the Christmas tree, and I created this fun little Christmas tree craft to make the topic more meaningful.

This conifer life cycle craft is perfect to reinforce the topics taught during this science lesson and it works well as a science center too. Plus, it's a craft too! Students add the conifer life cycle sequencing cards to the trees to create a 3-D display. This will make a perfect Christmas craft for all students in your class or homeschool.

The 3-D Conifer Life Cycle Craftivity includes original art graphics from me, directions, patterns, conifer life cycle sequencing cards, a black and white conifer life cycle poster, and a color conifer life cycle poster. The four conifer life cycle sequencing cards are for pinecone, seedling, young tree, adult tree. You can ask students to add labels if you wish.

You can find it at my teaching resources store {HERE}.

ESL and ELL note : The life cycle of conifer poster in this packet is also in Spanish and reads reads Ciclo de vida de las conifera (there is an accent mark above the i in the product) This is not included in the page count.

Tip: Have clothespins on hand for the little ones to hold the pieces together and you can even tape the backs together.
