After some brief notes with visuals students use their knowledge to try and determine if a picture is a vascular or non-vascular plant. Answers are provided in PowerPoint form at the end so student's can self assess. A template sheet is provided for students to record answers. I usually tell the students this "quiz" won't be graded but understanding the difference is critical for the rest of the unit. Botany Unit preview is also included.
