Introduction to Plants
These are the perfect resources for teachers who are looking to introduce or review basic plant parts and their functions with their students of all ages! The Conservatory offers a wide range of roots, stems, leaves, flowers, and seeds for students to explore and touch. Unveil the magical world of botany with this introductory exploration of all things plant! Students will uncover plant parts, functions, and diversity in this exciting set of resources.
Looking for an easy way to explain plant reproduction? Look no further! At the Conservatory, we’ve got a dynamic set of pollinator stories that go beyond the humble bumble bee. Select resources from this theme if you’re looking to take your students to the next level of pollination.
Take your students on a fascinating journey through time as you explore how plants have adapted to different environments throughout the years! Investigate convergent evolution in the desert house, discover why carnivorous plants eat insects, and discuss the dynamic differences between plants!
