Plants – Scientists in Schools

On Monday, May 12th,  2014, a lady named Sarah came and talked all about plants and their parts. The inside of the flower is called a pistel and around the pistel are the stamen. There are petals around the stamen. We also made paper. The paper was made with newspaper that we put in water and after put it in a blender and blended it. When it was blended we put seeds on it and let it dry. When it was dry, we Cwere able to take a piece home and plant it.  We also did a crossword puzzle after we did two centers. The first center was making paper. The second center was all about plants and after, we smelled different kinds of foods from plants and guessed what they were. We also looked at a leaf underneath a microscope.  It  was awesome!recyld paper

Nice work with your post Getruda! I can tell you paid attention well and learned a great deal about plants. What was your favourite part about the presentation? I thought it was neat when the test tubes turned a yellowish green to show the process of photosynthesis. I hope your recycled paper with seeds grows! Keep up the great writing! 🙂

Thank you! My favourite part was when we were able to smell all the different plants.

Yes, it was fun to smell the different plants to determine what type of plant it was!
