Lesson Description: Learners explore forest layers (the canopy, the understory, and the forest floor) and record observations on cards. Then each learner draws one of the layers on a strip of paper. Finally, the class combines all the drawings to create a layered forest gallery, and learners share about what they observed.
Plant Heroes educational materials were developed with funds from the US Forest Service.
