This WebQuest was designed to teach students about the external parts of a flower. This lesson can easily be adapted for in the school environment or the virtual classroom. The practice sessions are both based online and videos were used throughout the lesson if there are any students who have no access to actual flowers. This Webquest will take a full class session in school but virtually it can be done in parts.
