On Friday we started to think about how we could use classification systems to identify plants that are actually very similar-this means we couldn’t just identify them by colour or size. To help us do this we created our own botanical drawings to let us think about the features of each plant such as the shape of the petals and the veins on the leaves. We then ‘dissected’ the flower to compare the parts of the plant that can’t be seen straight away.

Some great work from everyone 🙂
