As part of our Elementary Biology unit on Plants, 3rd and 4th grade students investigated the parts of a flower. The week was started with a beautiful story of Lord Jagannath accepting a less-than-perfect flower offering. It sparked great conversations with the students. You can read the story here.
They dissected the different parts of a flower, finding flowers in their backyards or during their nature walks. Did you know a flower has female parts and male parts? Here’s the Parts of the Flower craft they made.
You can pick a flower from your backyard and do the same with your children! Here’s a tutorial shared with our students.
Below Veda and Aradhya share their flower discoveries.
