Parts of a Bulb Plant


This is an activity I made using a flower press on a bulb my daughter found in the garden. She was immediately attached to it, wanting to bring it to the nature table.  After pressing for two weeks, I laminated and scanned the image.  It pressed very nicely, so I added words to name parts. By printing it twice, I made a simple nomenclature work to go along with our botany studies and gardening afternoons. Feel free to save the image for yourself.

Thanks. We have done parts of a flower and tree and roots, etc so many times. This will be a refreshing change:)

This is really cool! I don't know why, but it never occurred to me to teach parts of a bulb plant! Wild garlic is prevalent around here. We will go dig some up and try to press it!
