In this interactive hands-on study, students will observe both the intricacy and diversity of leaves found amidst Selby’s unique plant community. Using specialized flat crayons to create leaf rubbings, students will discover the unique vein structure and texture of different plants. Next, high-powered hand lenses will be used to magnify the exterior features of the leaves. Inquiry-driven discussions throughout the lab include the function of leaf veins, simple vs. compound leaf structure, vascular vs. non-vascular plants, the purpose of varying leaf shapes, i.e. the bo tree’s drip tip.
