From Flower to Fruit At Sixth Ave Elementary

The strawberries growing in our garden this week beautifully illustrated several stages of fruit growth. Students could easily see how a pollinated flower drops its petals and transforms the center into a juicy fruit covered with seeds. We can’t wait for all the other flowers to make their transformation so we can have a tasty snack!
