plant products in my TpT store.
One of my goals of late has been to spruce up, improve and update the quality of my teaching materials on plants. No changes had to made to the content. I love teaching plants, and I was already doing a great job with the content. I just wanted to make my materials more attractive and more visually appealing for my students.
So what's new? I have made a very picture-ific 97-slide PowerPoint presentation, added some crossword puzzles, a set of PowerPoint review questions, and some new daily quizzes. I have plans for new homework assignments, study guides, and a few new labs I want to try out. My problem is that I have more ideas than I have time to carry them out! All in good time, I guess.
At any rate, one of the new things I have just created is a graphic organizer for comparing and contrasting the major groups of living plants. When a lot of new material has been covered, my students sometimes struggle with remembering all the details. A teaching tool that never fails to work is a graphic organizer. When the content is logically organized and put into place, studying by the student becomes much more effective.
I have listed this new graphic organizer for plants in my TpT store. It allows the students to compare the liverworts, mosses, ferns, gymnosperms, and angiosperms. It is a freebie, so be sure to click the links below and grab a copy for yourself. I hope you find it useful.
