About this book

Playing fields and sports grounds aren't just for sport; they can also be a great place for science investigations. This foldout chart is the first in the new series of FSC mini-projects, designed to help KS3 students design and carry out simple ecological investigations. The illustrations by Carol Roberts show a small selection of plants common in playing fields and lawns, with a straightforward guide to leaf shape, flower shape and colour, and other key identification features. The text side takes students step by step through a full SC1 investigation from planning, recording in the field to considering their results. A "Further Investigations" section suggests extension work which may also be helpful for KS4.
