Flower Investigation

Part of our plant unit is to take a plant and investigate it -- find all the basic parts, study it, journal it, work on our project sheets, etc. I took Holly to the nursery and she chose a little pink Primrose flower for her investigation.

We placed the plant in a large dish to help contain the dirt mess. She used her magnifying glass, a brush and small stick to carefully break it apart and find various bits of the plant. She added this flower to her nature journal, completed the sheet on the plant finding the various parts of the plant and drawing a diagram of it and then we replanted it.

As simple as this was, she loved it!
