Guest Hollow’s Botany Curriculum
Learn about plants and nature!
Welcome to Guest Hollow’s Botany Curriculum!
We think botany is an overlooked topic that gets shoved into a chapter of biology and then forgotten. Plants affect and enrich so many parts of our lives! Our houses and clothes are made of plant materials. We eat plants. We enjoy their beauty. They provide us with medicines, fuel, perfume, dyes, paper and a variety of other products. They are tied to history and even our future. They are an integral part of our lives!
This course is for any student who has a love for nature and plants. It’s also perfect as a pre-biology course (or post-biology!). Students will learn the science behind plants and to appreciate the myriad contributions plants make to our lives!
Approximate Daily Time Commitment:
45 min. – 1 hour depending on activities that are chosen and reading speed
