Student Activity - Plant parts

Activity idea

In this activity, students relate commonly eaten foods to different parts of the flowering plant life cycle. They use an interactive or paper-based graphic organiser.

By the end of this activity, students should be able to:

  • recognise different parts of flowering plants (roots, stems, leaves, flowers, seeds, fruit)
  • understand the roles these parts play in the life cycle of flowering plants.

Science Learning Hub Survey 2014

Dear Hub visitor,

You're invited to participate in an online survey about the New Zealand Science Learning Hub. This survey was designed to help Hub staff enhance and develop further the site. This is different from our November 2013 survey, so even if you took part in that survey, we would appreciate you taking this survey as well.
