This choice of resources is fun and would stimulate the pupils interest for a longer time and make learning more interactive in the classroom.
This site is tremendous for both teachers and pupils.It is a great site because I am edified and entertained with the movies and flipcharts to teach the topic:"Plants. These materials have assisted me to have a wider knowledge to teach this topic in the classroom. I am encouraging teachers and pupils to take full advantage of this site because it is an award winning site.
This is a great site to learn about all sorts of plant movement. Great animations.

I spent about 40 minutes browsing this site. I would like to use some of the videos for the lectures that involve plants. I like very much about the movie categories. Each vocabulary it has its own video clip. Students can define the meaning by seeing the motion pictures. I so love the part of “plants in Hollywood”. The movies that relate to plants definitely motivate students’ learning desire.

would like to use this in an Into Biology class and have the students perform
something similar to the time lapse movies. I feel students being involved with
the process would enhance their learning experience. The site was very user

introductory biology course. I think it would be a good way to kick off a unit
and generate student interest. The site was very easy to use, and the movies

T1 connection, most movies loaded in less than 10 seconds. From my 56K modem at
home some of the movies took over 5 minutes to load. Aside from the slow
loading, the videos were excellent! I plan to use this site for my online
non-majors biology class and for my general botany class. I anticipate that my
students will be amazed at the videos and be more interested in plants as a
result of viewing the videos. The materials are easy to use, of high quality,
and should enhance the educational experiences of my students.

sciences. The animations of the tropisms are excellent. I asked class members
to create assignments based on the Quicktime movies available on the site. This
proved challenging for them. However, they were very excited about the
opportunity to discuss complicated plant responses based on a movie.
