FREE Printable Hebrew/English Plants/חלקי הצמח Activity

We have moved onto botany and plant science in our Living Learning Science curriculum and I wanted to keep up the Hebrew side of things a bit, so I created this printable poster, and then had the brilliant idea of cutting it up and pasting the parts onto colourful paper (this is regular-sized printer paper because I’m sick of trying to cram construction paper into the kids’ binders).

Lots more great links to botany and plant science information in Hebrew at this site… if you read Hebrew, which I don’t!  (but Google Translate is helpful)

Here is Gavriel Zev doing his.  He enjoys pasting, though he has a light touch with the glue stick and this creations often fall apart.

Shabbos ready 007

Shabbos ready 038You can do this in one of two ways:  for an easy activity, cut the English/Hebrew labels out together.  There are only four:  simple!  To make it a bit tougher, like I did for Naomi Rivka, cut apart the English and Hebrew to make EIGHT labels, so they have to stop and figure out which goes with which.

I also had the kids colour in the different parts and for Naomi, copy the names of the parts.  I wrote them out so she could see them handwritten before she did hers, and I think she did a great job!

Remember, if you’re doing Plant Parts and want a decent poem to go along with it, I have a printable for that, too!

Ancient Auction Secret: If Chinese auctions are racist, why do Jews love them so much?

Ah, Jews, Jews, Jews, Jews.  You sure do love your Chinese auctions, don’t you? It seems that even in an era of political correctness, within certain circles, this term just will not die . And frankly, I’m mortified. I’m not Chinese, but I have family who is Chinese.  Some are Korean, as well.  I guess this makes us more ethnically diverse than many Jews, but I suspect most Jewish families are moving in this direction.  Still.  Even if we don’t know a single Chinese person, we should still stop calling it that. First of all… is it actually racist to call it a Chinese auction? I figured I’d let Chinese people decide.  But when I turned to Google to find out how Chinese people feel about Chinese auctions, what I found was mostly… nothing.  Silence.  I did find some debate (presumably among non-Chinese people) over whether it was too far in the direction of political correctness to refer to these as a “silent auction” or (as in some parts of the States) a “tricky tray.”  (Ok
