To engage students in video observations of plants

Take a look at the Resources (Plant Growth) section, where you will find a link to a video showing the growth and shoot development of a Furcraea (flowering, formation of brood buds). The film is based on time-lapse observation of a 100-year Furcraea selloe in the hothouses of the Botanic Garden of Moscow State University (“Aptekarskiy ogorod”) and was produced by A.G.Velikanov. The video was shown during MSU’s INQUIRE course and generated great interest amongst the teachers, who are now using it in their classes. It is a good example of how modern technology can help inspire and engage students in regular observation of plants at home and in school.
