    We don't do your homework for you. We will be happy to help you get started if you show us what you don't understand. Pick ONE problem and tell us what you are having trouble with. Then we can talk about the other nine.

    I need information on plants. "Explain the roles different parts of a plant have in converting light energy into chemical energy." I need to teach this to a special education child in as simple terms as is possible. Can you tell me some sites I can look at to find information so I can acclamate the information into simpler words for understanding for the "APA" reports for the state of New Jersey.
