Dissecting A Flower

DSC02342

With our Botany Science we got to dissect a flower.  We are lucky enough to have two big patches of poppies in our yard.  They are absolutely beautiful when they bloom.  (I was going to go take a picture of one of them, but the weather took them all away before I did)

I wasn’t going to take pictures of us while we were doing it, I really wanted to focus on it with the kids.  So this is our finished paper.  They each had their own. 

They loved doing this so much, in fact I overheard them telling their friends what fun it was.  (I did a secret “yes” fist pump)

This looks really cool! This summer I have been trying to do a mini nature study of our wildflower garden with the kiddos...taking pics of it's progress, id-ing the flowers...disecting a couple of the flowers would be a great activity to add :)

We did this too and the kids have been pointing out the different parts and talking about it to everyone! Great pics!
