Field Notes
In class today we got to go outside, it was rainy and really cold. We did vital signs observations. We could smell the woods. We heard people talking and cars going by. We could see the school, the power lines, woods, and people. But our only problem was we couldn't find the plant we were looking for. I think we couldn't find what we needed to look for was because it's Fall, so some of the trees and bushes had no leaves.

Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
We did not find Redtwig Dogwood because the plant we found had thorns but the Redtwig Dogwood doesn't have thorns
Photo of my evidence.
We know that we didn't find what we needed because the Redtwig Dogwood is about 1.5-4 m tall, but the plant we found was taller than the Redtwig Dogwood.
