This is a well-put-together collection, containing different types of sources such as scipacks, journals articles, books, and external resources, all of which are relevant to the collection topic.

5 Plant Structures Collection Review
I believe this is an excellent collection of resources, with examples of teaching different aspects of plants and their structures so that teachers can cover all the bases.

Overall, this is an invaluable collection for educators looking to teach elementary students about plant structures.
