Allapattah Flats K-8 students learn about plant reproduction

Allapattah Flats K-8 students in Edwina Taylor’s fourth grade classroom are currently learning about the life cycle of plants and plant reproduction. Each student was given a flower to examine, so that they could label the parts of the flower. Then, the students created a Brace Map to separate the plant from whole to part. The students really enjoyed this activity. Pictured front row from left, Aiyana Owen-Edjang, and Jaida Baker. Back row, from left, Dymond Willis, and Emmanuel Noel.
