Today we continued our study of plant life cycles and reproduction by searching for flowering plants in our school gardens and pond area. We found many different flowering plants that we could carefully dissect to identify the male and femlae reproductive organs. There was some excitement as the microscopes meant we could identify pollen on the anthers of our flowers. Wonderful to see science in the real world- applying our key knowledge to the natural world around us. We also considered the ways in which these flowering plants might germinate around different areas of our grounds through movement of living things, seed dispersal and weathering.
