Fibonacci Sequence...Part II

Fibonacci Sequence in nature
The Fibonacci sequence has intrigued mathematicians for centuries. It is noticed that these numbers appear in many different patterns in nature, often creating the beauty we admire.
I have collected the following pictures from various resources to show them to my students. They are asked to look for Fibonacci numbers in pictures of objects from nature. They are asked to look for specific numbers that appear in the sequence, not for the entire sequence.
Normally, I divide students into groups of three or four and distribute the Activity Sheet containing pictures: Finding Fibonacci Numbers in Nature.

Count the number of dots on each flower.
