Dear Parents:poster-kids.JPG

Do your little ones know that plants are living things?

Do your little ones know that plants have a life cycle, just like humans and other animals?

While the summer is just outside of our windows, the Confucius Institute would like to invite your little ones (4-6 years old) to explore the plant world with us in our Virtual Kids Club every Wednesday, 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm via Zoom! Please see the dates and topics below:

Date & Topics:
June 3rd (Life Cycle of Cotton Plants)
June 10th(Dandelion)
June 17th(Flowers)
June 24th (Cactus)

To register for the June Kids Club sessions and obtain the course links, you can email with the name and age of your child(ren) by 4:30 pm, Tuesday, June 2nd. We will share the zoom link and session reminder shortly after the registration closed.

The session will only open to a limited number of students to maximize their learning experience. First come, first serve!

In the upcoming session, “Life Cycle of Cotton Plants”, the instructor will use Cotton Plats as an example to show our little ones how plants follow a cyclic process of starting a new life, growing, and then coming back to the starting stage.

During the session, our participants will:
Sequence the steps in the life cycle of a cotton plant and make a "Model of Cotton Life Cycle" together
Identify the parts of a cotton plant materials
Say the word Cotton Plant in English and Chinese
