November13

We tested each other by reading out some ‘What am I?’ clues to make sure that we know all the parts of a flowering plant and what they do.

If you want to test yourself, the clues are at the bottom of this post.

  • I protect the flower when it is growing.
  • I am the female reproductive part of the flower. I have three sections.
  • I am the male reproductive part of the flower. I have two sections.
  • I am a section of the female reproductive part of the flower. Pollen tubes grow down me.
  • I am a section of the male reproductive part of the flower. I hold the flower’s pollen, which sticks to birds and insects.
  • I am a section of the female reproductive part of the flower. I store egg cells which, once fertilised, grow into seeds.
  • I am a section of the male reproductive part of the flower. I hold the anther up nice and high so that its pollen can stick to insects and birds.
  • I am usually around the outside of the flower. I help to hold nectar in some flowers, and I attract insects and birds.
  • I am a section of the female reproductive part of the flower. Pollen grains from other flowers get stuck to me.
