Botany in a Day

This was a short, 6 week, summer botany class based loosely on the book, Botany in a Day: The Patterns Method of Plant Identification by Thomas J. Elpel

Half the classes were in the classroom, looking at plant specimens and learning botanical characteristics.  The other half of the classes was spent on fields trips, finding and identifying plants in the wild.

  1. (class) Plant parts, dissect tulip
  2. (field) Battlecreek Wilderness Park, scavenger hunt
  3. (class) Major Families (& higher taxa)
  4. (field) Orem Park trees
  5. (class) Botanical keys
  6. (field) Battlecreek Canyon

Stories about Louis Agassiz are very instructional too.
