Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 28, 2014 9:40 PM

Check out this great infographic that provides "50 insane facts about plants." The image above shows some (but by no means all) of the facts related to record breakers. Other categories on the infographic include:

* Food and Drink

* Plants in History

* Plants Around the World

* Carrion Flowers

* Amazing Plants and Useful Plants

There is also a 2nd infographic that shares the sources used in this one which is located at this link.

This would be a fun infographic to share with students. You might have them try to find facts about plants or other subjects that they could use to create a classroom infographic.

Charlie Dare's curator insight, July 30, 2014 6:33 AM
