One day after playing in our backyard all morning, D came inside the house looking for me with a flower from our hosta plant. She wanted know the what the name of those inner thread like things are. So I pulled out our botany flower puzzle, the nomenclature cards and book (the ones that were collecting dust for while!) and let her explore and find out the answer herself.
|Here she arranged the various puzzle pieces under the part cards.|
|Then I helped her to carefully dissect the flower so she could match the real parts with the cards.|
|She read the booklet to understand the funtions.|
|Then she drew, colored and labelled the parts of the flower.|
