Observe the structure of a flower.
What function does each of these structures serve?
Observe the variety of flower shapes.
To identify the parts of a flower reproduction stage: pollination.
gladiolus flower, forceps, hand lens, dropper, water, microscope slide,
scalpel, coverslip and microscope.
Displayed an illustrative drawing of the structure of a flower on the
chalkboard. Referring to the display; students and teacher labeled each
part of the flower.
Students and teacher reassembled a disassembled artificial flower;
labeled the parts as we reassembled the flower.
The class was given live flowers for dissecting. Some dissected parts
were placed on diagrams of flowers.
Class members were informed that in flowering plants, it is the transfer of
pollen from an anther to a stigma.
Most flowers are pollinated by insects. Some by animals, wind or birds.
The assessment would give the result of the findings of parts of the
flower. The live flower revealed more parts than did the artificial
flowers, with the exception of the pistil.
Presently, students have become familiar with the basics of the flower.
