Study Jams! Gymnosperms: Seeds in Cones

This Study Jams! Gymnosperms: Seeds in Cones lesson plan also includes:

Two very hip teenagers walk through the forest collecting evergreen cones. One teaches the other about gymnosperms: cycads, ginkoes, gnetophytes, and conifers. He tries to convince his friend how amazing cones are, while she defends flowers for being pretty. The dialogue is enjoyable in addition to being educational. This is a must if you are teaching about this ancient, seed-bearing form of plant life!
