    Course Description

    Botany is the scientific study of plants. In this introductory course, we will explore topics such as: what is botany, the life cycle of a plant, parts of a plant, how seeds work, what is photosynthesis, plant classification, poisonous plants, how roots work, and so much more! Students will leave this class with a good understanding of how different types of plants grow, live, and what their purpose is.
