Our 4-color plastic paper chart and cards illustrate the current classification of the plant kingdom. This classification organizes the plant kingdom in a straightforward manner with simple definitions and examples under each heading. First the plants are categorized as either bryophytes or vascular plants. Then the vascular plants are divided into two groups: seedless plants or seed plants. Seed plants are divided into two groups: gymnosperms and angiosperms with subcategories.
Nineteen picture cards (2¼” x 3″) illustrate the currently recognized lineages of the plant kingdom. Children match the 19 plant picture cards to the pictures on the chart (18″ x 32″). Text on the back of the picture cards describes each plant. Advanced students can recreate the chart with the title cards provided, using the chart as a control of error. Background information is provided.
