Unusual Plants & Plant Behavior (3rd-5th)

Teacher: Donna Neely

Description: We will be looking at the uniqueness and variety in the world of plants. Most students know what a plant is and may even know the parts of a plant, but do they know what an epiphyte is? Tropisms? We will be exploring the fringes of the Plant Kingdom and seeing how some plants are specifically created to survive in their particular environment. We will look at some unusual adaptions and structures that make these plants unique.
