Parts of a Flower Classroom Project

Learning all about flowers and plants is a fascinating topic, and super fun too!

Parts of a Flower Classroom Project

We know that it’s great for students to learn about parts of flowers and plants to improve their understanding of them. That’s why we’ve pulled together a brilliant activity you can do as a class project and also a number of resources from EducationCity to use on the theme that you can use in your lessons.

Firstly, the project we’ve pulled together is to create a flower in groups using different materials. This is a great way to learn about and improve understanding of different parts of flowers. You could use it as a starter project to learning about flowers or when your students have more understanding and they can do it without your help.

To start, all you need to do is gather your class into groups and task them with creating a flower using a variety of materials you provide – the materials can represent different parts of the flower.

Let’s take a look at some ideas for materials you could use for the different parts – some parts of the project will require the use of scissors so adult help may be required.

 

Sepal/Petals

  • Coloured Card
  • Coloured Paper

 

Style/Filament

  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Paper Straws

 

Ovary

  • Bottle Top
  • Rice Pieces

 

Anther/Stigma

  • Cotton Wool
  • Sponge Pieces

 

Simply ask your class to create a flower on a large piece of paper by cutting and sticking down the items and then labelling what each part is too – perfect!

Now here’s a range of resources on EducationCity that explore flowers and plants for different age groups and year levels to use in your lessons. To find them, just enter their ID numbers into the Search tool – easy!
