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.
