5 Plants Collection Review
This is a great collection because it consists of journal articles teachers can use when teaching about plants. These articles consist of activities that support the 5E teaching model. Several learning experiences are mentioned within this collection. Students can learn about the life cycles of plants, and physical properties. They can also get a better understanding about the parts of a plant.

This collection consists of great ideas for lessons we can incorporate into our classrooms. It is a great way we can teach our students about nutrition.
