Grade 6

  • Learn about local naturalization areas and the specific plants within them. The class will create their own guide to a naturalization area (schoolyard or otherwise) through observation and online research of a chosen plant. Wrap up: have each student present his or her findings; put the finished projects together into a “real” guide for display.

Students choose a plant and complete the worksheet by drawing, measuring and recording information about the plant. Use pictures and guide books to try to identify the plant. Wrap-up: what characteristics of plants can we use to identify them during winter?
