Description In the Botany Unit Study you can learn all about plants from the roots up: life cycles, needs, usage, differences, uniqueness, and comparisons. Microscopic to hands-on labs with plenty of Lab Sheets. Practice/review pages and the 50+ flashcards help students master essential concepts such as flower parts, leaf shapes, and root types. Appropriate for 6th grade through high school ~ this 160+ page study provides an exciting and comprehensive look at the plant world around us. Cathy Duffy says, "Since there are no [homeschool] botany texts written for elementary and high school students, until now those of us who wanted to study botany had to create our own courses from the ground up. This unit study solves that problem and does a great job of structuring a botany course that is both enjoyable and educational."

Reviews

"Kym Wright has provided the tools, the rest is up to us! I would have to say that this "unit study" qualifies as a full-blown, one-semester course in Botany or beginning Plant Biology, rather than what we’ve come to see as a unit study. This is serious learning, complete with microscopic exploration, research and plenty of reading, replete with labs and experimentation - all well thought out, well laid out, and organized so we can jump right in. This lady did her homework, and it shows! The course smacks of professionalism from the print quality to the lesson quality." (Rainbow Resource Center) Read more here . . .
