During this class we reviewed in depth the parts of the plant. We talked about the functions of each plant part (roots, stem, leaves, flower, fruit, and seeds) and how each part had an important job for helping the plant survive. We completed a worksheet together as a class, that diagrammed each plant part and students wrote down what each plant part did. We learned a new term: Photosynthesis, and how leaves convert the energy of the sun into “food” for the plant. After the lesson the students were given a chance to explore the garden with their new knowledge in mind. We still had tons of sunflower seeds left over from our HUGE sunflowers, so students were able to snack on some yummy seeds!
