Spring Showers, DIssecting Flowers

Posted by William Benson on 3/29/2021

Return to in-person learning means more hands-on learning for our students. Students at Graham Middle School were preparing for flower dissection when I visited this morning. The students were going to dissect alstroemeria, a typical grocery store flower.

 

You will have to find a suitable spring blooming flower and round up a few supplies, but you can dissect flowers at home as well. Here is a link to flower dissection at home from Scientific American: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/dissect-a-flower/.

P.S. Lots of flowers blooming in Alamance County right now. You may have one right outside your home – if it is in your neighbor’s yard, be sure you ask permission to take one!
