- A project of LSF
Students go outdoors to be plant detectives by observing closely and gathering clues about common plants. In doing so, students develop a greater awareness about the features and characteristics of plants, including invasive species. This activity may be a jumping off point for further inquiry and can be a step towards building an outdoor learning routine.
This activity is part of the Lesson “Be a Healthy Habitat Hero!” where students engage in discussion, analysis and play interactive indoor and outdoor games to spark their curiosity, learn about the issue of invasive species and how they impact us all.
This outdoor activity supports Science units for students in grades one to three which focus on plants, habitats and invasive species. Once students have completed the activity the class can create a class field guide for plants in their schoolyard using photographs or drawings. Have students share their photos with other peers in the school.
