Experimental Work in Education: Flower Gardens in Secondary Schools


by C. H. Robison — 1907

In the autumn of 1904, a botany class in a North Dakota school started, under the direction of the writer, a piece of work involving material quite similar to some used in class work somewhat later. Near the end of October, the students set out, in beds prepared by themselves, about six hundred tulip bulbs. The project described below had certain merits and deficiencies to be noted later. This class, composed of second year students, continued the subject through the year. The work of the first month, October, was on the "habits" of mature plants, such as the movements and arrangement of leaves, and the various sorts of stems adapted to different conditions. As examples of the underground food storage type, the potato and onion were studied somewhat in detail as to structure.
