This week’s learning theme is plants. We got lots of rain last week and tons of flowers as a result. Today we decided to dissect a flower.
We didn’t use all the scientific terms, but my three year old had fun identifying the petals, the pollen, the stem and leaves. She loved looking into the stem and seeing the hole, like a straw, that sucks the water and nutrients into the flower. We even tried using part of the stem as a straw.
