Center Focus

Trefoil Observation

  1. This center works if you can find patches of clover or other trefoils. (Trefoils are plants having leaves that are composed of three leaflets.)
  2. If clover is growing at your school, have your students go outside for this observation center. Clipboards work well for this part.
  3. Have your students observe the clover and write descriptions about them, making illustrations to go along with their observations.
  4. If you are able to find more than one type of trifoliate plant, have your students make observations of both and make some conclusions about the similarities.
  5. Using this science observation sheet works well.
