My son is currently learning about flowers and their role in plant reproduction. We could have just read about flowers and called it good, but what’s the fun in that? We decided to make it more hands-on. Here’s how you can, too.
Head outside and collect different types of flowers from your flower beds or flower pots. Notice their varying colors, shapes, sizes, and number of petals.
Identify wildflowers using a wildflower guide. You can find wildflowers in a field, in the woods, or even along the road.
You can use this Parts Of The Flower lesson printable as a resource to help learn the parts of a flower and identify them on the flowers you collected. Diagrams, labeling, and sketching help students learn and remember the terms they need to know.
