Reflection: Exit Tickets Identifying Plant Life - Section 3: Now I Know . . .


I want to use a formative assessment for the lesson, so I ask students what they learned. Here is what some students said:

Now I know...

  • that LeafSnap is a great way to look at leaves. You can find out what the leaf is and also see what fruit grows on it too.
  • that not every leaf is the same, but if they look the same, look closer and compare the veins.
  • that is you identify a leaf you can find out what tree it comes from, what flowers grow on it, and many other things.
  • that LeafSnap is a quick way to take a picture of a leaf, figure it out, and you can also save the picture or it!
  • that there is more than one way to find out what type of leaf there is.
  • how may leaves look alike.
  • more ways to identify leaves in fun, different ways.
  • how to identify my leaves using an app or field guide.


Yes! They understood. They got it!
