According to Wikipedia, flowers can often have important symbolic meanings in Western culture. For example, red roses are often given to others as a symbol of romantic love or passion. Daisies are often considered a symbol of innocence, and irises are often used at burials to symbolize resurrection. Examine the more scientific side of flowers with this great slide set! This set of slides features five different samples of flower parts—even better, each part comes from a different variety of flower. The set includes 1 slide specimen each of a sunflower stem, a buttercup stem, a lotus root, a lily leaf, and a rose petal. It also comes with a guide of interesting facts about each of the specimens. This is a great science resource for any classroom, and is a wonderful way to bring variety to the regular lesson on plants. An awesome home-schooling resource, this set can be used with any compound microscope you have at home or at school.
