Dissecting a Typical Insect-pollinated Flower
Carefully remove the parts of a buttercup flower A, B and C shown in the diagram above. Arrange these parts on as piece of black paper, as shown below.
Take three labels and write the names of the flower parts on them. Stick these labels on the black paper in the correct places. Use two more labels for a title and your name. Finally, cover your dissected flower with a piece of sticky paper.
Looking at parts of a Buttercup Flower using the Light Microscope
Your teacher will show you how to make slides of the petals, stamens and carpels of your flower so that you can study them using a light microscope. You will need to use the high power lens to see the pollen grains in detail.
When you have finished your practical work complete the labels on the two diagrams to the left.
