Teaching kids about plants can be a wonderful way to inspire their knowledge of – and curiosity about – the natural world. Indeed, kids seem to be fascinated by seeds, plants, flowers, trees, and anything else that grows. Lessons on botany can also be tied to information about nutrition, since the plants we eat are intimately connected to our health.
