Flower Word History Posters

Have students research the appearance and word histories of begonia, zinnia, gardenia, and magnolia. They will find that the flowers are named for botanists—people who study plants. Have students make posters with a drawing of each flower and a brief history of its name. They may add the other flowers named for botanists.
