Mrs. Daniel’s fourth grade students at WDE observed the parts of a flower by dissecting tiger lilies. First, they separated the sepal to discover the protection it provides for the stamen and pistil. Then, they extracted pollen on their fingers from the stamen supporting the concept of pollination. Finally, they located the pistil of the flower in order to understand fertilization.
