Ag Unit: Cotton Pictorial

The second day of our unit we drew a cotton pictorial.  My amazing partner traced an enlarged version of the cotton plant from Cotton's Journey
It was traced in light pencil and I went over it with markers while the kids watched.  We talked about each part and what each part does then labeled each part.  A few weeks later we added the real boll to our pictorial - just for fun!

This was their very first introduction to cotton!  This took us about 30 minutes to complete. 

Just a note for the teachers ready - we also said the chants the day we did this pictorial (and every day of our unit).
