This set of words about plants includes the most basic to more complex and specialised vocabulary connected to ideas and concepts that are embedded in this theme. You could invite the students to sort and organise the words into groups such as every day words, important words, specialised words, words I can read but don’t understand, etc.

The students might be given the opportunity to find links between these words and words in their primary language. It could be an opportunity for language specialist and home room classes to work together to develop vocabularies in dual languages, thus supporting higher level comprehension about plants.

Students could create picture or bilingual dictionaries connected to class inquiry into plants.

These words can be used in spelling activities and can be examined for rules and patterns, as well as being examined in reading and writing contexts.
