Flower and its parts

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.
