Ag teachers,

I wanted to introduce you to a resource that I use in my classroom:
Geoblox 3-D Models.

These models lend themselves to the teaching of Horticulture/Plant
Science.  They are challenging for students to make and can easily be
reproduced for instruction.  To use them, you need to photocopy the
models onto cardstock.  Additionally, you will need scissors, colored
pencils/markers, and glue or scotch tape. I like to keep a good sample
of completed models to show students how to make ‘em.

I use models from three different books.  Sometimes we make the models
in class,;sometimes they are used for extra credit.
