Part I: The Basic Parts of a Flower
1. Provide students with a copy of the Basic Parts of a Flower handout, have them read through the information on plants.
2. Each time the handout discusses a flower part, have students find it on their diagrammed flower and label it. They will need this information for the next activity.
3. After completing the reading, review the following questions:
What is the male part of the plant called?
What two parts make up the stamen?
What is the female part of the plant called?
What two parts make up the pistil?
What part of the female plant receives the pollen?
What part of the plant produces the pollen?
What part of the plant becomes seeds?
What does it mean to have a perfect flower?
Part II: Flower Model Choice Board
Students will work to create a model of a flower, then label it with the correct anatomical features they learned in the previous section. The choice board provides students the opportunity to determine how they would like to create the model and allows for flexibility in the materials they have to work with.
