What do plants and all living things need to grow? How does the flower help the plant and help insects? How do insects help flowers? This comprehensive 2 month unit on flowers and insects answers those questions. It covers the parts of the plant, the parts of the flower and the parts of an insect. For comparison the parts of a spider are also included.
