Whether you’re a parent, a classroom teacher, or a homeschool instructor, you know that students learn best when they can interact with their subject. It can be fun and inspirational to explore and experience an educational concept first-hand.

The sample project featured here comes from a new, free resource that’s helping to inspire an appreciation of botany in elementary-age students across the country. The educator website MyBotanicPlanet.com is a creative collaboration between TruGreen, the nation’s largest profes­sional lawn, tree, and shrub care service provider, and the Memphis Botanic Garden.

U.S. standardized lesson plans in botany and related activities available on

MyBotanicPlanet.com were created by professional curriculum developers to help grades K-5 teachers and students explore the diverse plant world. Through online and hands-on experi­ences, this creative educator resource lets students customize an avatar to explore colorful plant environments and interactive games as they learn. My Botanic Planet visitors can interact

with educational guide Flavor Flores on an adventure in the origin of plant flavors, and with Inspector Nectar on a flower mystery investigation.
