Parts of a Flower



Have you ever slowed down enough to notice a flower? To really examine and admire each tiny little part of these wild and beautiful bits of nature? Use our printable to learn about, and label, different parts of a flower. Laminate the blank printable, and use dry erase markers, so that it can be used over and over again.

Here is some language to use as you explore the various parts of a flower:

Root: Anchors the plant, absorbs water and minerals and stores extra food

Stem: Supports the leaves and flowers, carries water and minerals up from the roots to the leaves, and then takes food back down so that it can be shared with other parts of the plant

Leaf: Turns energy, from the sun, into food for the plant as well as breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen

Bud: May develop into a flower, leaf, or shoot

Flower: Blossoms to produce the seed, or fruit, of the plant
