Thursday 24th March 2011 – This Week’s Great Plant Hunt

Filed under: Great Plant Hunt @ 4:49 pm

In Great Plant Hunt this week we had the choice of sketching the school, identifying various buds on trees or going on a texture trail.

For the texture trail we had to find and touch – soggy decomposing leaves, lacy skeleton leaves, silky flower petals, flexible grasses, rough tree roots, furry moss, rigid bark, brittle twigs, waxy evergreen leaves and sticky horse chestnut buds.

The trees we identified by their buds were Ash, Birch, Alder, Elder, Hazel, Beech, Horse Chestnut, Rowan, Oak, Hawthorn and Dog Rose.

We had a great time.  Next week we are making animals shelters at the bottom of the school field.

  1. As Dylan and Matthew asked so nicely, I am looking forward to coming and helping the Great Plant Hunters build animal shelters next week. Hope the weather stays dry!
