In this meticulously researched curriculum, students become amateur plant scientists as they explore the Kingdom Plantae through engaging computer presentations, plant experiments, and other lab activities. Plant Science also gives students an excellent introduction to significant scientific knowledge that students will encounter again in biology and chemistry.
