The Science in Flowers

Using nature to study science is the most live and amazing way to learn.  Not to mention the fact that it's a huge science lab for FREE! Here are some great tips for studing plants in your backyard science lab.
1) Study petal ,sepals, buds, stamen, and pollen by finding several flowers and disecting them
2) Find a large flower like a lilly and dissect it to view its reproductive system. Locate the ovul,ovaries and pistil.
3) Study pollination by viewing the pollen on a flower and how it works in conjunction with bees
4) Find afruit tree and study how the fertilized bud becomes fruit.

A great way to remember what you've studied in your backyard lab- is to use a portfolio or notebooking/lapbooking journal to draw and paste pictures and information.
