Budding Scientists

Knowledge was “blooming” this week as students investigated the plant world. Students learned how scientists separate plants into groups based on their characteristics.  There are vascular (have a root system) and non-vascular (no root system) plants. Flowering plants also have male and female parts where they can both give and receive pollen from other flowers.

We ended our class with a fun flower dissection.  During the dissection, students worked on identifying and determining the function of the specialized structures of the flower. We discussed pollination and examined how each of the specialized structures of the flower participates in the process of pollination.

Don’t be surprised if your budding scientist asks to dissect the next bouquet of flowers that enters your house!
