Playing fields can be a great place for science investigations. This chart is designed to help 11-14 year olds design and carry out simple ecological investigations in a familiar and accessible habitat.

Colour 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 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.

This is just one of the FSC's range of fold-out charts, designed to help users identify of a wide range of plants and animals. Each chart is laminated to make it splashproof and robust for use outdoors. Clear colour illustrations and text by experts in the subject make these valuable resources for all age groups.
