I wanted to do something about the life cycles for plants with this file folder game, and really wasn't sure how I was going to add that. I started with the right side first, because I wanted the flowers.
So, for the left side I added the life cycle. I used my craft knife and made slits, put 2 layers of Scotch tape on the back of the numbered dirt piles, and slid the tape through the slit. That created a lift-the-flap type design for each cycle. But, as I was doing it, I think if you are unsure about making the slits, you could just cut the dirt numbers out and let the kids learn number order also and just lay the dirt on each plant in order.
If you have the kids put the numbers in order, then you can work on numbers, colors,
God makes the rain, sun, plants, flowers, people, dirt & grass, etc. This is the finished inside with the rain and sun so you can discuss what the plants need. You can print the FFG here.

Also, a picture to color.
