Hands-On Activities for Pests of Food Crops and Ornamental Plants
In this activity you will learn how to identify plant problems, diagnose possible solutions, and answer:
- What is the problem?
- How and where will you research solutions that address the problem?
First, watch the "What's Wrong with this Picture" presentation.
Next, read the What's Wrong with this Picture Activity Directions to learn how you will identify the plant problems and diagnose possible solutions in this activity.
Use the “What’s Wrong With This Picture?” Worksheet to record your research, solutions and findings.
Although this activity is designed to do in small groups, they can also be done individually as 'homework' to test your diagnostic skills.
Small groups: After watching the "What's Wrong with this Picture" presentation, take a look at the group file listed below that you are assigned to, Group A,B,C,D, or E. This file will include six plant problems to address. Follow your course facilitator's instructions on how you will complete this activity.
Individually: After watching the "What's Wrong with this Picture" presentation, refer to the What's Wrong with this Picture Assignment which includes all of the numbered picture of plant problems. If you wish to do this activity in smaller chunks, take a look at the Small Groups A-E listed below, each of which include six plant problems to address.
Small groups will report their findings to the whole group. Answer Keys will be provided by your course facilitator.
