Robbye Herrington’s Advanced Placement Biology students were assigned to create a visual example of a dicot flower by Sept. 19. After thinking and creating, the students presented their flowers to class.  

“I like to be creative so I think it was fun to turn the flower into a light bulb and it took around two hours to make,” Dalton Glasscock, 11, said.

Each student was allowed to choose any miscellaneous items they could find to form the project.

“It was fun because it gave me a visual of a dicot flower,” Chelsea Ridder, 11, said.  “It was easy to make because it was a matter of using household objects.” 

There are 25 students in the class, consisting of upperclassmen from both South and Maize High.

“I made a flower out of beads and wire, and hot glued a bunch of stuff together,” Stephanie Parks, 11, said.  “It was better than doing regular homework; it was a fun project to do.”
