B-I-N-G-O- Chasity Perez

Ohhhhh nelly, this one was tricky, it was tricky, tricky, tricky! I think because I was limited to my own geography and A LOT of referencing my notes with my fingers and toes crossed. Honestly though, it was a great experience to get out of my comfort zone. While I may not have all my identifications correct; I had a few ideas for changing the board, I wanted to try and complete the given one. For my students, I will definitely create a BINGO board because I love incorporating any kind of games for students and this will be be great for our fall pond life unit.


  1. Thanks Chasity,
    you did a great job on this one. I think the silique is actually a legume which is from the Fabaceae (pea family), a few of you have selected a pea, but the pea, is derived from one carpel, just folded onto itself, while the silique is a bit more complicated and derived from more than one carpels, 2, possibly 4 carpels. According to some authors, the replum represents 2 fused carpels, and then you have two carpels one on each side of the replum. But the other images are spot on. We cannot see the porate anther dehiscence, but the lingonberry that you are showing has porate anther dehiscence, so well done. I think I just posted a comparison of pea fruits vs. those in the mustard family that have siliques in response to another students posting. Here just another section through the fruit of a silique showing the parts from DOI:10.3390/agronomy8080137. In peas, you do not have two vales falling off the center where the seeds are attached. Rather the seeds sit on the fusion of the carpel walls and the midrib is the area where we sometimes open the legume.

    Thank you so much for the clarification! I was trying to do a little cross-referencing and honestly thought it was a legume (especially since I grow peas in my garden AND after watching the module 3 videos), but then was just a little stumped on how to proceed with what was around me. The diagram you provided is super helpful, thank you for that. I’m going to have to slice open a few other pods and see what I can find!
