The school has been partnering with HEB to receive flowers on a weekly basis. All the classes have been incorporating flowers into a nature study and learning through them.
For this provocation the children did a science experiment using the microscope! The stem sliced open from the flower and put it under the microscope to show the children the inner parts of the plant and how it functions.
The children inspected the sample and were asked to describe what they saw. Next they illustrated what the observed .
Some terms used to describe what they saw when taking a closer look of the inside of the stem:
The teachers observed the children’s drawings were very accurate and similar to the image viewed under the microscope. They were able to identify each marking and retain the information and transfer it onto paper.
Parents,feel free to stop by the classroom to view your child’s work for this project.
