12 Activities for the 12 Principles of Plant Biology

Students will explore a principle of plant biology through each inquiry-based lab based on the 12 Principles of Plant Biology. All twelve labs contain: - a concept summary relevant to a middle school audience - engaging photos to enhance understanding - tips for setting up and conducting student-driven investigations - specific teacher guidelines for sourcing materials, streamlining the process, and using additional research

Plotting Plants: Tracking Troublesome Plants with Technology

Originally published in NSTA's January 2015 Science Scope, this research unit on Ohio invasive plant species serves as an extension of a 6th grade unit exploring Earth science topics -minerals, soil and geology - and life science topics - cell biology, plant cells, tissues, and organs. This unit increased students’ awareness of native and nonnative plants species in Ohio as students explored the effects that invasive plant species have on native plants in Ohio’s ecosystems. Invasive ecology and nonnative plants are largely ignored or absent from standard curricula and science classrooms. Plants continue to play an increasingly important role as we look for solutions to many of today’s issues, such as loss of biodiversity, energy alternatives, and sustainable food sources. For this reason, it is important that plants and plant ecology become more prevalent in middle school curricula. In this unit, students worked in small groups to research an invasive plant species’ scientific name, description, habitat, managements, native alternatives, and locations in Ohio. They presented their research in the form of an informational poster or brochure. To extend this activity, an EarthCache was created in collaboration with a local state park to encourage students to explore the effects of invasive ecology and to engage with their local natural resources. Keywords: invasive plants, nonnative plants, EarthCache, geocaching, middle school

All in the Touch - Plant Biology Curriculum

¬ďIt¬ís All In the Touch¬Ē is an after school curriculum which encourages conceptual understanding of plant diversity, cell structure and function through tactile exploration of these topics. It has been recognized that human senses of touch, smell and taste are effective and meaningful ways of educational engagement. Focusing on a tactile approach to learning reinforces scientific concepts in a more relatable and durable way. The curriculum engages student interest in plant biology and genetics by providing hands-on activities that make learning fun and informational! The curriculum, which was funded by the American Society of Plant Biologists (http://aspb.org ), adheres to National Science Education Standards in Life Sciences.
