So when looking at plants as part of a school project, a few guerrilla tactics can be deployed. Creating a "Top Trumps" type of database appeals to some children. Points can be awarded based on the variety and characteristics of each plant.
So here's a wee test for you. See if you can work out which plant is which from the photos above below. The first three above are probably easy to work out. The rest may be more tricky. Scroll down for the answers
A - Flowering currant; B - Plantain; C - Nettle; D - Garlic mustard; E - Hawthorn; F - Honesty.
What it does do, is encourage children to observe plants more closely. They will find the changes to the petals, leaves and overall shape of the plant quite fascinating. It can lead on to some interesting story writing too. Because I'm having fun exploring apps, I stuck a photo into Phoster and played around with it. This app is about posters and greeting cards. The downside is only one photo can be used on each poster but it is easy too use.
