Sketching April Flowers

on April 22, 2014

Our fifth grade classes were able to sketch some colorful flowers in our perennial garden.  We are observing the red emperor tulip to help learn all the parts of the flower and discuss pollination.  Some flowers that have bloomed in our campus gardens include the snowdrops, crocuses, blue squill, glory-in-the-snow,grape hyacinth, daffodils, and tulips.  Our garden in the back of the cafeteria with more shade and cooler temperatures is about 2 weeks behind in blooming.  Next class we will be studying the parts of the flower under the microscope.
