7th Grade Geobotany
Students will examine different habitat types and conduct soil tests to determine why certain plants have adapted to live on certain soils. During spring programing, students will learn about flowering plants, reviewing pollination and plant life cycle as well as learning how to identify flowers based on specific characteristics of the plant. During the fall, students will learn about the diversity of conifer trees throughout the Klamath-Siskiyous and use dichotomous keys to identify trees.
