Thank you for considering the “Let’s Map: A Flower” file. I have found this to be an excellent way for students to learn and remember the parts of a flower.
When students map a flower, they assign colors and/or patterns to each part they need to identify. They fill in the key and the part with the assigned color/pattern.
This file includes four different student pages:
*The first picture labels the petal, stigma, style, ovary, sepal, filament, anther, and stem.
*The second picture labels the petal, stigma, style, ovary, sepal, filament, anther and stem but also has the student label the stamen and pistil.
*The third (with arrows) and fourth (without arrows) pictures allow the student to label the individual parts without a key (this is helpful in case the terminology used in your classroom differs from those given on the previous pictures)
You can have your students use solid colors to differentiate between the parts or you can let them run wild and choose patterns and designs. Either way, this activity is great for referencing what they’ve learned. It also works well as in an interactive journal or as a classroom or hallway bulletin board display.
