  1. Poor 3. Fair 3. Good 4. Excellent
Labeling The student mislabeled most of the parts. The student could only label a few parts. The student could label most of the parts.  The student labeled all the parts correctly
Description The student wasn't able to correctly describe the majority of the details.  The student was only able to describe a few parts.  The student was able to describe most of the parts.  The student was able to describe all parts accurately. 
Model The model showed minimal effort and no creativity. The model showed little creativity and not much time/effort. The model showed good creativity, but the effort was lacking. The model was very creative and thought through with much effort. 



By now, your student should be able to correctly and confidently see a flower and describe its parts. Your students need to be able to know more about the world, so learning about flowers has helped open their eyes to their surroundings. Hopefully, they can now go and teach others.
