Simple biodiversity practical

Based on a recent article (Souter, 2017) here is a simple practical do be conducted outdoors as a starter activity for a lesson on biodiversity. Students are taken to a suitable location within the school grounds and given the instruction to collect as many leaves as possible in say, 2 minutes. As individuals and certainly as a class it is intended that several species will have been collected. Demonstration of “real biodiversity” in a local and familiar setting.
