Dissect a Flower Form 5 & 5(1)

Dissect a Flower Form 5 & 5(1)

This week in science we have been learning all about the different parts of a flower. We used tweezers to take part the flowers and magnifying glasses to look at the flowers closely. This is what we learnt.

What are the main parts of a flowering plant?

Stem: The stem supports the plant above the ground. It also carries minerals and water from the roots to the leaves.

Leaf: Leaves gather energy from the sun and carbon dioxide from the air, which, along with water and soil nutrients, are used to make food for the plant.

Petal: These brightly coloured parts of the flower attract insects and birds.

Stamen: The stamen is the male part of the flower and consists of a filament and an anther.

The anther produces pollen.

Pistil: The pistil is the female part of the flower and consists of a stigma, a style and an ovary.

The ovary contains eggs in ovules.
