Peterson First Guide to Trees
This introduction to botany through the study of the nature and attributes of trees has six goals for students. 1) - to learn the basic aspects of botany including plant systems/organs and their functions. 2) - to be able to classify the different types of plants and their external characteristics. 3) - to identify the internal parts of plant organs. 4) - to explain the basic process of photosynthesis and respiration including the chemical equations of each. 5) - to learn the processes of pollination, fertilization and seed dispersal. 6) - to classify trees according to their characteristics and be able to identify them in a guide. The reader and student guide are required, and the teacher guide is strongly recommended. Black & white illustrations appear throughout, and multiple sketching pages are included. ~Deanne
