Flower Parts

Grade 3

The parts of flowers are discussed along with the botanist, Elizabeth Britton. Students then use oil pastels and shading techniques to create flower parts and assemble these parts to make a flower relief.

Students will:

  1. name the flower parts as they make them for their flower collage and when finished.
  2. identify analogous colors as they make color choices for their flowers.
  3. use oil pastels for drawing, blending and shading techniques on the petals and leaves of flowers.
  4. use folding techniques for a three-dimensional relief effect in the flower collage.
