In this video, students are going to learn about the difference between flowering and non-flowering plants and their seed dispersal. Jamie Hite and Ginger Rehm will take you on a tour of Brooke Creek-Life Science. You will be able to observe many non-flowering plants such as cinnamon fern, sword fern, moss, epiphyte, and pine tree as well as flowering plants such as Beautyberry bush and buttonbush. Gardens like this can serve as living laboratories in which students see and experience firsthand what they are learning and, in turn, apply that knowledge to real-world situations. When students engage in hands-on gardening lessons, they show an increase in positive attitudes towards content material and learning, in general. So plan a visit, if you are in town.
