Biology-Parts of a Flower



Process 1:

You  will be introduced to the different parts of the flower by: 

Process 2: 

1. You will read and view the function of each part of the flower with each other.
2. You will then use the resources provided in this web quest to research the different parts of the flower and their functions.
3. Then draw and label the parts of a flower in groups of five.


Dissection of the Hibiscus flower:

  1. You are going to go outside in groups of four and pick a Hibiscus flower from the Hibiscus tree.
  2. After each group is with a flower, they will return to the lab.
  3. Each group will then be given a Cartridge paper to add the following headings; Part of the flower and their functions.
  4. When this is done, you are going to dissect the flower in the same groups you were placed.

  6. To see if they know I will ask before each cut if they know what the piece is called. An example would be "Do you know which piece is the sepal?" When the students point it out they will then cut the piece from the Hibiscus flower. We will go through each piece finding the stem, petal, sepal, pistil and more.
  7.  After each piece is cut out, each group will then glue each piece to a white piece of cartridge paper. Going together to make sure each part is put in the right place. After the pieces are all put on the paper there is a flower ready to be labeled.

Process Continued-

  • Once the flower is constructed go back and label each part one at a time, and asking with each piece if they remember what the name of the part is called. So we find the stem and write "stem" next to it. Then in your note books you should write the function of each part. 
  • After all labeling is done you should turn over your cartridge paper with the flower and see if they can properly label the parts of the flower on the board as a review/quiz. 
  • It is going to be ensured that each person from the groups are able to give the functions of each part without using the book. This is to ensure that each student understand.
