Flowers play an important role in pollination. The beauty of flowers goes further than their outward appearance. This is why it’s important for children to learn the parts of a flower. Educating your child about the parts of a flower and the benefit of having flowers in this world is an important step towards teaching them how the various parts of our world work. So why not check out our free label a flower printable?
This science educational printable for learning the parts of a flower will provide your child with a word bank:
- Sepal, and
Using this word bank, your child can write the words on the photo of the flower. The words should be written where each part of the flower is located. As your child works to truly learn and remember what parts each of the flowers are named, they’ll be learning a bit about science.
Once your child has matched the word bank with the appropriate parts of the flower, you can discuss why each part is an important part of our everyday flowers seen around our community.
