K-12 Roots & Shoots
Teaching & Learning with Plant Science
Know plants; know life science. No plants; no life science.
Developed by ASPB, these 12 principles provide basic plant biology concepts for science education & public engagement.
Success with science requires mastering science content and processes as well as literacy with the language used to learn and communicate science. View our library of K-16+ scientific literacy resources from ASPB or Society collaborators.
We offer activities that fit especially well into existing classroom units so busy teachers can add a dash of thoughtful plant biology to their existing plans. Guest scientists can leave the activities for independent follow up. Students can use them for preview, homework or flipped classroom assignments.
