Project: Plant Classification Book- Due Mon, March 20th
Plants have amazing characteristics that make them adaptive to a variety of environments: hot, cold, wet, dry, high elevation, windy…. Within the plant kingdom, the numerous characteristics allow a variety of plants to obtain nutrients and water, reproduce, and otherwise interact with the environment. The purpose of this project is to observe plants a little more closely to see some of these characteristics.
Armed with your sketch book and pencil, head out into an environment (around the school, your home, a park…). Look around at the plants, make sketches of various features of plants environment- stems, leaves, fruit, cones, flowers, fronds, spores, seeds, etc.. Also, take detailed observations of the features about which you are focusing. Based on these characteristics, you will classify your plant.
How will you be graded:
For 5 plants:
- Sketches of plant details (stems, leaves, fruit, cones, flowers, fronds, spores, seeds, etc.)- Multiple sketches of a plant may be taken to show these details. (2 points per plant)
- Observations- details about the structures of the plant, especially those that help you determine which plant it is (3 points per plant)
- Type of plant (Which phyla?- bryophyte, tracheophyte , gymnosperm, or angiosperm) and why you determine this (2 points per plant)
Students have been very creative and imaginative while painting their animal banks, just a few minor details and the project is finished. Animal Banks and evaluations will be graded this week.
