Flower Dissection and Imbibation

I woke up on Friday, the last day of our Spring Break, and asked the kids what they wanted to do. So we spent the better part of the evening doing science experiments. We carefully dissected flowers and labeled the parts on a worksheet. We also looked at a piece of each section under the microscope.

We started some carnations in colored water to be able to visually see the water travel up the stem and to the petals.
