Course taught by Julie

Botany is not a course meant only for students planning on a science career. While Botany, as presented on SchoolhouseTeachers.com by Julie Polanco, is an informative scientific course that gives a perfect basis for more in-depth studies by students wanting a career in science, the information presented in this course also helps each student learn the importance of plants in their own lives. Each of the topics covered in this Botany course builds on another until your student has a fuller understanding of the wonder of the plant life God has placed around us and how to live with it and use it in everyday life or as a basis for further study.
