Introduction

Botany is defined as the science study of plants.  This web quest is designed to introduce students of all ages to the wonderful world of plants.  By searching through their surroundings they will begin to become familiar with the process of classifying and identifying different species of the botany world.   Younger grade levels can be as primitive as bringing in their favorite flower or plant for show and tell.  Middle school aged students can begin to group the plants and flowers to things that look the same.  By the time students reach high school they should be able to classify various plants and flowers (with the help of guides and atlases).
