We are studying plant life in science this week. I’m working on moving the lower students vocabulary and I’ve put plant structure vocabulary all over the place. I’ve read it, spelled it, pointed it out, and used whatever tricks I have! During a discussion about plants, we began questioning how structures of a plant are ideal for photosynthesis. One of the questions asked was, “What is the green substance inside a leaf (chlorophyll)?” At that time a student yelled, “Chernobyle!” I cracked up! I mean I really lost it. So I’m apologizing tomorrow.
