Virtual Resources, Digital Content, and eBooks | 5th Grade Maryland Flower Research | Scoop.it
Katie Cox's insight:

This page takes you to the Baltimore County Public School Databases.  These databases and sources of information are purchased by the county for you to use.  You do not need password to use any of these resources in school.  Suggested resources for this project would include:  SIRS Discover (K-6), World Book Student (K-6), Science Reference Center (6-12), Gale: Science in Context (6-12).  Not all of these suggestions will have what you are looking for, but they will have some information about some (not all) of the plants on the list.

Native Plant Center | Chesapeake Region

Native Plant Center | Chesapeake Region | 5th Grade Maryland Flower Research | Scoop.it
Katie Cox's insight:

This site allows you to search for information on native plants of the Chesapeake Region.  Click on the tab that says, "Search for Plants," and then type the name of a native plant/flower in the search box.  If the site has information it will display it below the search box.  It will not have information for every plant on our list though.  To access the plant information, click on the picture and you will be directed to a new page that displays information related to that particular plant.  I like this site because if it has information about your flower, it will also have a picture!

Katie Cox's insight:

This resource provides information about plants located in the different regions of Maryland.  Use the map and click on a region to access PDFs describing that region of Maryland.  Towards the middle of each PDF there is a list of plants native to that region of Maryland.  The list/chart includes information like scientific and common name, type of soil needed, amount of sunlight the plant needs as well as flower color.

MD Native Plants: Plant Lists for MD Regions

MD Native Plants: Plant Lists for MD Regions | 5th Grade Maryland Flower Research | Scoop.it
Katie Cox's insight:

This resource also lists plants native to the different regions of Maryland.  When you click on a region you will be directed to a list of native plants.  If you click on the link for a particular type of plant (groundcover, shrub, tree, etc.) you will be redirected to a list of native plants of that type.  This list will include important information that you can include in your caption  such as scientific and common name, type of soil needed, amount of sunlight the plant needs as well as flower color.
