Real vs Paper

Yes, I use worksheets, but I try to use the real thing whenever possible.  We're studying plants right now.  I think most schools are, now that spring is here.  There's always a wild batch of wildflowers somewhere around where we can pull our samples.  I gave each child a sheet of construction paper, and we glued our plants on them.  Allow to dry overnight.  The next day I wrote the words LEAVES, ROOTS, STEM, and PETALS on the board for them to copy, and they had to place the words in the correct areas.
