We are completing the botany series on functions, parts and adaptations of plants. Each week, an Upper Elementary child collaborates with Holly to present the material on leaf, stem, root, flower, fruit and seed. Today, our presentation on flowers coincided perfectly with Mother’s Day this coming Sunday. We used the flowers remaining from our dissections to create table top set ups of still life to paint. The results made lovely gifts to honour our mothers, who one child equated to the flower, which is the ovary/woman of the plant. How cosmic.
