School Grounds Guide: A Pictured Guide for Identifying Common Organisms Found In and Around the School Ground.
Designed for quick, easy identification of some of the most commonly encountered organisms found in and around the school ground, this illustrated guide identifies by a picture and a short biological description the common animals and plants found in and around school lawns, house lawns, parks, fence rows, flower gardens, vacant lots, and foundation plantings. Some of the drawings include a size. The food preferences for the animals are indicated, and the life cycle classification is given for the plants. The organisms are grouped according to the following pattern: small flying animals (dragonflies, mosquitoes, aphids); small non-flying animals (ladybug, spiders, earthworms); big animals (frogs, birds, dogs); non-grass plants (dandelion, clover, plantain); grass-plants (crabgrass, bluegrass, foxtail); fungi (mushrooms); and trees and shrubs (maple, juniper, barberry). A glossary of terms is at the back of the guide. (Author/CM)
