Anatomy of a Flower

This week we learned the different parts of the flower(focusing on the pistil and stamen), ate flowers(marigolds), and tasted oils infused with herbs and flowers of herbs(rosemary, sage, and thai basil). Students were so excited to explore the garden and name the parts of the flowers they knew beyond the parts of a plant.
