Science- L.O. To identify and name a variety of plants.

What is growing in our surroundings?

This activity can be carried out in your garden, outside on a walk or a green space.


Go on a plant hunt to find and name as many plants as you can. You will need look at the plants colour, leaves and petals to help identify them. Some will be common flowers, like dandelions, daffodils or daisies, however, some might be a little more unusual! On blank A4 paper, put the date and objective at the top and please draw, colour and label as many different plants/flowers that you can find. Take your time and be as accurate as you can with your drawings, for you are carefully observing and identifying.
