Students explore the parts of a flower. In this flower structures lesson plan, students study a model of a flower and dissect a flower. They label each structure of the flower and observe the pollen grains and ovules under the dissecting microscope. Students answer 20 questions about the structures and functions of the flower parts.
Students draw and label the parts of a flower using a coin from the Northern Mariana Islands. In this flower parts lesson, students look at a transparency of the reverse side of a quarter from the Mariana lslands. They discuss the location of the islands and complete the associated worksheets. They follow directions to make a flower using art supplies.
Beginning biologists pull a flower apart and familiarize themselves with the different reproductive structures. Why have them learn only from just a book or diagram when they can examine real samples? There is no link to the referenced worksheet, however, finding a handout with floral structures is not difficult. Introduce your class to the process of sexual reproduction in plants and then assign this laboratory exercise to bring the instructional activity to life!
Students learn the parts of a flower. For this flower parts and pollination lesson, students discuss the background and vocabulary about flowers and play a game to learn what happens during pollination. Students use various materials to create a model flower with all of its parts.
Students explore the parts of flowers and how they reproduce. They dissect flowers and observe the reproductive organs. Students observe anthers and ovaries of Tiger Lilies under a microscope. They investigate how insects and other organisms are involved in the reproduction process.
Fourth graders dissect flowers and paint them in the motif of Georgia O'Keefe. In this flower lesson, 4th graders participate in an experiment in which they dissect a flower and complete a worksheet in which they label the parts of a flower. They look at examples of flowers that were painted by Georgia O'Keefe before creating their own example.
Here is a clever lesson on pollination of flowers for you. In it, learners study the anatomy of a flower, and play a game in which they simulate the process of pollination. This fine plan brings in elements of art, physical education, language arts, and science. It should lead to a good understanding of one of the more amazing biological processes in nature.
Middle schoolers use their bee sticks to cross-pollinate their Fast Plants and also focus in on the anatomy of flowers. They analyze how the parts of a system go together, and how these parts depend on each other. Finally, students describe why they think the pistil is sticky of the flowering plant.
Second graders examine the parts of a flower and how pollination occurs. In this flowers and pollination instructional activity, 2nd graders examine the parts of a flower with a hand lens focusing on the pollen. They watch as a pollinator such as a butterfly carries pollen on their bodies, and watch as fruit grows from a flower. They make a storyboard that shows the process of fruit growing from a flower.
Plants have specific needs for survival just like animals do. Examine the four basic things plants need to survive; air, water, nutrients, and light. First, the class reads a book and views a presentation to learn about plant needs. Then, they discuss the purpose each part of a flower plays in its survival. They assemble a flower model, naming each part as they progress through the activity. A worksheet is included to assess student understanding.
Why are flowers so darn pretty? Well, as your class will find out, it has a little something to do with pollination and plant reproduction. The class discusses all the things that make flowers attractive and how those attractive features lure birds, bats, animals, and insects to help them pollinate other plants or disperse their seeds. They complete a plant diagram and then make flowers of their own that have specific traits tailored to attracting specific types of pollinators. It is a great lesson with background information for you and a project for your kids!
I bet the kids in your class will love to eat their vegetables after an engaging lesson about edible plants. They read information about vegetables and edible plants, sort vocabulary words, identify plant parts, measure and graph the weight of several vegetables, plus so much more. The lesson is well integrated, thematic, and includes Common Core standards. Now that's tasty!
