First day at LFCSA!

Last Monday on April 3rd, was my first official day at LFCSA! I will be taking over Ranger Gamon for the rest of the school year. For Mondays class we talked about flowers!! I started off by reading a book called “The Reason for a Flower” by Ruth Heller. Then, went on to talk about two parts of a lily flower, the pistil, the female part of the flower, and the Stamen, the male part of the flower. The stamen produces the pollen, while the pistil is the one who receives it. Everybody had the chance to look at real lilies and use paint brushes to look at the pollen on the Stamen. We headed out to the garden, and while using magnifying glasses they explored the garden for flowers, and its parts. We ended with a taste of a flower, which was Nasturtium flowers!
