Plant Program in Grade 4

plantsOn October 18, Massachusetts Horticultural Society Plantmobil program visited Fourth Grade. The students reviewed the parts of the plants and their functions (roots, stem, leaves, flower), then dissected their own alstromeria flowers to locate each part. Looking inside the flowers, the students found ova, and connected the flower to the life cycle of the plant. Finally, the students worked in groups to examine terraria filled with plants from different habitats (tropical, desert, wetland, forest) to describe the adaptations of plants to each environment.
