Last week we talked about the world of plants: from gardening, to harvesting medicinal plants and everything in between!
Learners can try an activity about how plants defend themselves, or about gardening.
For original version listening, try an episode from TTBOOK called plants as persons.
Learners can try a reading comprehension activity about choosing houseplants or about plants making intelligent decisions.
For original version, check out one of the following articles:“Returning the Gift” by Robin Wall Kimmerer

This week for writing, write an essay about how plants are important to us (think about plants as food, medicine, decoration, beauty).
