Product Description
Students will look at various examples of aquatic vegetation and sort them between submergent, floating, or emergent vegetation. These three types of wetland vegetation are defined within the activity.

Enrichment: non-native vegetation of introduced species can become a problem in our waterways. Students are encouraged to research the sample plants on the internet to sort between native and non-native vegetation.

Emergent - spatterdock, swamp lily, cattails, alligator weed, flag plants
Floating - water spangles, duckweed, pennywort, water lettuce, floating hearts
Submergent - Southern naiad

Native: spatterdock, cattails, duckweed, pennywort, flags, swamp lily, southern naiad
