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 ages 14-16.
