Objective: To investigate some NWT shrubs and their specific characteristics
Introduction: Plants are important providers of food and medicine, gas exchange and water cycling. While there may be fewer plant species in the North, those that thrive here can be found in abundant quantities. In addition, knowledge of their identification and value is becoming less common. This lesson plan aims to introduce students to some northern plant species and get them excited about plant watch.
