Flower Dissection

4th - 5th

For this science worksheet, students follow directions for dissecting a flower. Students tape the parts of the flower in the corresponding boxes. Students also read about how flowers reproduce and analyze a related diagram.

Resource Details

Flowers and Georgia O'Keefe

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.

Flower Power: An Introduction to Heredity

Students investigate biology by completing a flower identification exercise. In this botany instructional activity, students examine a group of cut flowers and discuss how their traits successfully pass on over the course of time. Students define pollination and a list of other vocabulary terms before dissecting their flowers.

Flowers and Pollination

Students explore the environment by researching plant reproduction. In this pollination lesson, students define botany related vocabulary terms such as disc flower, petal and fertilization. Students dissect a flower with their classmates and identify the plant anatomy as they do so.

Plant Parts You Eat

Plants provide a variety of delicious foods essential for human survival. In the fourth lesson of this series on food science, young scientists investigate common fruits, vegetables, and grains in order to determine which plant part is represented by each. A great activity that reinforces an understanding of plants and raises awareness about the way they help support human life. Conclude with a reading of The Mysterious Marching Vegetables to connect learning about plant life with children's literature.

What Is a One Part Per Million Solution?

Water may appear to be crystal clear, but there could be dissolved substances present. Lab groups make a one-part-per-million of a food coloring solution to demonstrate this concept. As part of an outstanding unit about water, this lesson prepares learners to consider invisible water pollutants in a future lesson.

Following Directions - Ndakinna Wilderness Project

Students draw a diagram of the steps used to camouflage a person.  In this biology lesson, students watch and take notes on a video about using camouflage as a tool to observe nature. Then students follow instructions to create a diagram of the steps needed to camouflage a person for the wilderness.

Flowers Seeking Pollinators

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!

Send in the Clouds

Young scholars culminate a study of the water cycle by following step-by-step directions to make a three dimensional cloud. On the model, they draw a diagram of the water cycle and label it, and add a written report they completed in a previous lesson. They demonstrate mastery of the concepts from the water cycle unit with this assessment.

Flower Dissection

Students investigate th anatomy of a flower. They investigate the structures and processes by which flowering plants generate pollen, ovules, seeds, and fruit through dissection,

Flower Power

Students explore parts of the flower. In this plant biology lesson plan, students dissect flowers and identify how the seeds are formed. Students take a nature walk to pick flowers for future dissections.
