Aim
  • To Design and Draw a Plant specifically adapted to one of the following environmental conditions:
  • Caribbean Windward Seashore
  • Tropical forest understory
  • Tropical desert
  • Tropical pond
objectives
Objectives
  • Review and note at least five characteristic adaptations which plants have made to live in each environmental condition
  • Design and make an annotated drawing of a newplant suited to the selected environmental condition (include at least three adaptations and their functions)

Core Skills Targeted

  • Communication (reading and responding)
  • Information Technology (Internet search)
  • Personal Skills (independent or group work)
environmental conditions
Environmental conditions
  • Caribbean windward seashore
  • High winds
  • Dry soil conditions
  • High salt concentration in soil
  • Tropical forest understory
  • High rainfall
  • High humidity
  • Low levels of sunlight (deep shade)
  • Tropical desert
  • Low rainfall (drought conditions)
  • High daytime temperatures
  • Cool nighttime temperature
  • Tropical Pond
  • Aquatic
  • Slow flowing or still water
method
Method
  • Research plants suited to each of the environmental conditions mentioned in the Iris Bannochie library (see suggested reading below)
  • Locate actual specimens representative of each condition within the gardens
  • Observe and note the adaptations they have made to better survive their environmental conditions
  • Use these plants as a guide to create, name and draw your own plant for each environmental condition
points to consider
Points to Consider!!
  • Do research in the library on naming plants (you might learn a little Latin!!)
  • Your drawing will be judged on its clarity, sensible and legible labels, practicality (special adaptations noted on or below drawing) and dimensions
  • Be creative!! (don’t redraw the specimen plants!!)
available resources
Available Resources
  • You can use the internet access available in the Iris Bannochie library to assist in your research
  • You can also consult with your teacher or demonstrator for the location of suitable specimen plants for each environmental condition within the garden
