The aim of the kit is for the students to compare and contrast between xylem and phloem in terms of structure, function, and features.
The kit contains a power point presentation and a student’s activity booklet. The booklet is found in two formats, colored, and B&W. The power point has two links for two videos, which have been downloaded for easy access. They are just used for summing up and adding some extra pieces of info, but the main thing is the power point content.
The student’s activity booklet can be used to encourage students to take notes after discussing each point in the presentation.
The 23 slides presentation is a step by step presentation talking about both systems in a logical way. I have been using it for several years and it always proves to be efficient.
It starts with an experiment students usually love.
You can ask the students to give their suggested explanations and keep the right answer till you finish the presentation. You can ask them to go back to these explanations and check if they need to be adjusted. You’ll get lots of creative and fun ideas especially from the younger students.
