"The University of Illinois Extension provides these two excellent activities about plants. From the "Just for Kids" page, click on "Exploring the Secret Life of Trees" for a well-designed tour of the life of a tree. The pages load slowly, but the reward is well worth it. A cartoon acorn named Pierre Quercus explains the role of the roots and trunk and how children can help take care of an important renewable resource. Choose "The Great Plant Escape" to meet Bud and Sprout as they assist Detective LePlant in solving six plant mysteries, which are actually clever lessons on the parts of plants and their life cycles. Each case requires the reader to learn some basic plant facts and then to answer a few simple questions. The colorful progression of the task makes learning fun. Both links are interactive and provide audio-enhanced, graphics only, and Spanish versions."
