11. Plants - True Plants: Flowers (cc)

Our study of living creatures in this program is about plants. The plants we feature are all known as land plants. Most plants have the process of photosynthesis in common; this is the process that allows plants to take energy from the sun. Plants also have cell walls. Instead of dividing plants by scientific classes, we feature 3 ways we see plants every day. The first type is flowers. Flowers or blossoms are a part of the plant - usually the prettiest! We start out with creating canes from clay to make flowers. Then we use color pounded from real flowers to make artwork. Next, it's a sewing technique with ribbon to make rosettes. Last, we learn to make spirelli flower shapes. 2010/CC Closed-Captioned PIA 30 min.
