Herb is the leafy green or stem part of a plant, which may be dried or fresh. Spices are the (usually) dried root, seed, berry, bark or other part of the plant. Occasionally you may you fresh spices, such as ginger or galangal or turmeric roots, but fresh berries or other parts of the plant are almost never used.
classicalgeek is correct. However, there are some that are both herbs and spices. For example, coriander seeds (spice) come from the cilantro (herb) plant.
