Book of Trees Reader, Second Edition
Does your student know that the very gift of breath is the result of oxygen that trees and plants put into the air? Or that trees and plants provide sustenance for all life on earth? Our Trees Reader, along with a student workbook (sold separately) and the teacher key (sold separately), will teach your student the different parts and different kinds of plants, the processes of photosynthesis and respiration, and about flowers and fruits and other wonders of creation.
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
