Plant Characteristics

This investigation invites young botanists to identify plant characteristics and distinguish between species based on their observations, then use their observations to sketch what they find. Designed for students of all ages; includes extension activities. Students take a closer look at plant ecology by learning common characteristics of leaves and leaf structure. Then, students head outdoors to find leaf characteristics in their neighborhood or nearby green space. Finally, students are encouraged to spend time learning more about the plants they observe through extension activities such as poetry, research, or art.
