Parts of a Flower & its Life Cycle

Last updated on 22nd Jan to add more videos, etc.

Last updated on 21st Jan to add an alternative labelling game.


To help you study the reproductive process of plants, watch these videos and then, do the activities which follow. Try to learn the lyrics of the flower song - it will help you remember important details. Some words are linked to explanations; click on them if you don't understand the meaning.


Flowers may look pretty, but from a different slant
They're simply reproductive organs of a plant
The stamen has the pollen that goes to make a seed
It's separate from the stigma and the ovary

You need flower power so a plant can breed
You need flower power to make a lot of seeds

Pollen can be carried by an insect or the breeze
If you are allergic it can make you sneeze
It has to reach the stigma and the ovary
If it's ever gonna turn into a seed

You need flower power so a plant can breed
You need flower power to make a lot of seeds

You can admire their petals, their style and their stem
But I'll get mighty riled if you go picking them
Seeds must be dispersed so they get a chance
To germinate and grow into healthy plants

One day they will flower and make a lot of seeds
When pollen hits their stigmas and the ovaries

You need flower power so a plant can breed
You need flower power to make a lot of seeds

You can admire their petals, their style and their stem
But I'll get mighty riled if you go picking them

You need flower power so a plant can breed
You need flower power to make a lot of seeds

  4.  That's fantastic, Ayla! You'd need to register over at purpose games first if you want to see your score registered; otherwise, when you "send" your score, it "disappears".

    Hi Chiew

  6. Hi Lola,
    I'm glad you think you can use these activities. I'll try to look at rocks and minerals: if you have some material to give me an idea as to what they need to know, please send it to me. The email's on the right.
