As a whole class activity for the interactive whiteboard it is an excellent Resource.

In the first part of the activity you are required to drag the various parts of a flower to the appropriate box on the screen. Once you have done this you can click on the magnifying icon in each box which gives details of the precise form and function of the different flow parts : petal, sepals, carpel, nectaries stamens and receptacle.


On the next screen, a more detailed diagram requires that the names of the various flower parts be dragged into the correct place to label the parts.

There is a help screen available to explain the activity. Each dragged item springs back into place when placed wrongly. As the default for pupils would be simply to drag everything until it fits, thus learning very little, this activity would be best paced by the teacher and used for dis cushion with a view to getting each element placed correctly the first time.

There is also Text and a  Quiz to accompany this activity. This activity is a Flash based animation and, as such, will not play on some tablets.
