Lesson 1

Explore your garden, park or woods to learn about the variety of plants that it contains. Use a quadrat, string square or hula hoop to select a sample area. Look closely at the plants growing in the quadrat and use classification keys to identify what you can see. Share your discoveries on Class Dojo.


A mown lawn or field will have many different plants growing in it, such as daisies, dandelions, plantain, clover, buttercups, chamomile and moss. Darwin was one of the first scientists to use this sampling method when he fenced off a quadrat for his weed experiment. You could investigate an unmown as opposed to a mown area of grass, a shaded or unshaded area of grass.

Lesson 2

Look at the voyage of HMS Beagle and use the maps (see the resources below) or an Atlas if you have one to work out where the HMS Beagle and Charles Darwin travelled to on their voyage.
