Flowers are wonderful for decoration, to grow, to pick, and admire. Flowers are also a lot of fun for playful learning!
For this flower activity, I simply set a tray of cut flowers from our garden with a magnifying glass. If you don't have flowers in your yard, flowers can be purchased for few dollars. The magnifying glass is optional, but can be utilized to give your child exposure to a scientific tool.
Miss E decided how she would explore the flowers.
She observed the flowers by using her sense of touch.
She dissected the flowers, and we talked about what she noticed about the different flower parts.
She used the magnifying glass to take a closer look at the flowers.
