The study of plants is often limited to studying plant structure with little emphasis on the vital role plants play in our natural system and the variety of ways man uses plants. This unit, designed for intermediate level elementary students, reviews basic plant structure, discusses roles of plants in nature's system, illustrates plant adaptations, discusses major plant biomes and examines ways man has utilized plants. Also presented are a variety of activities centered around myths and folklore about plants, poetry about plants and information on state flowers and trees. The unit culminates with a visit to a local conservatory. Suggested time lines, methodologies and evaluative instruments are included. (MLB)
