The kids have dissected some flowers and labeled the parts.
Parts of a Flower 3 part cards. (The ones that say "donated by Angie" are free.)
Parts of a Flower Puzzle.
A friend told us about a field of sunflowers, so we went to see.
We found a passion flower and collected some seed pods so we could plant our own.
Yesterday, we took a trip to the UT Gardens to draw flowers. We were especially interested in seeing the different types of carpels, the highly varied female part of the flower.
I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
