Engage your students in learning about native Australian plants with this fun resource!
This is a versatile resource played using the same principles of traditional snap. The game should be played in groups of 4 to 6 and the deck should be dealt out evenly into piles of cards.
Each snap card features an image of a native Australian plant and information about the plant. Each player starts with their decks face down and places cards onto the pile without looking at them beforehand. If a player places a card on top of a card that is identical, whoever snaps the pile fastest wins the round and they add the pile of cards to their existing hand. Keep playing until there are no cards left.
The cards can also be used for a variety of other fun games that will also engage your students in learning about native Australian plants. The instructions for these games are included in the lesson plan.
A worksheet has also been included in this resource to help reinforce your students’ knowledge of native Australian plants.
This resource is fantastic to have on hand for fast finishers! It has been designed to meet the NSW NESA Science Years 7-10 Syllabus but can be used with students from a range of stages and learning levels.
