To conclude our little study on the different parts of a plant, we made some flowers today with the children. I used some of their paintings (the ones that look like a big colourful blob!) and cut flower heads out of them. I gave the children a lollipop stick, some glue and green paper leaves I had prepared the night before. They glued them all together and finally added some red lentils in the centre to imitate the seeds.
So, we have here all the parts of a flower (apart from the roots): petals, seeds, flower, stem and leaves. I sticked some magnetic band at the back of the lollipop sticks. They are now hopefully decorating many Irish fridges!!!!
