Portal to Plant Videos  Examples follow, but there are more.

Have you just covered  flower structure?  Show how that information is used in the real world.  Also, this film could be used before students design science fair projects (There are mentors at the Botanical Society of America to assist with plant projects).  This film could get students thinking deeply about how science is used to benefit society.

Pollination in Solanum (Tomatoes and Potatoes)

Are you studying cell parts?  Here is a film and song on the Golgi apparatus.  Perhaps your students could create films and songs about other cell parts.


Many more available...
