This resource could be incorporated into a plant unit in kindergarten or 1st grade. This is a diagram that students create to show the different parts of a plant. Students will create their plant and correctly label each part. I will use this as an activity to assess students to determine if they know the parts of the plants. #etlobest by ophelia

Leave panels on the tables to dry over night, then hang together as a group display down the hallways. 5 panels - from Painted Paper by sharron

There is a game where the students can design their own habitat as well. This will be a very beneficial website for each concept I will teach each day. by lenore

"Smudging is an intrinsic part of shamanism, the world’s oldest medicine. Shamans recognize that every form of life on this planet has a spiritual purpose and a sacred consciousness. They know that plants have invaluable healing properties. Human animals are not the top rung of creation’s ladder. All beings, whether plant, animal, or mineral are divine and have sacred right to life; all have something to offer to the manifest 'other.'” by donnabilodeau

This is a PVC plant light stand which you can make yourself. This plant stand has 3 shelves. One could be made with only 2 shelves if you are not starting that many seedlings. Each shelf will hold 4 standard (10" x 20") nursery flats. Cost to construct this unit is approximately $100 to $120 including the flourescent shop lights, but no shelving material. This unit is narrow enough that you can use the nursery flats to hold your plants and so no by Kim Paige

“Suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the fight the injustice to the animal. From that day forward he became an opponent. by terra

Photographer Lassi Rautiainen recently captured the profound partnership between a she-wolf and a brown bear in the wilds of northern Finland. For days, he witnessed the strange pair meet every evening to share food after a hard day of hunting. No one knows when or how this relationship was formed, “but it is certain that by now each of them needs the other." by yesenia
