This guide provides many examples of plants from across Canada, perfect for educators looking to bring the great outdoors into their classroom. Following a robust introduction, entries are grouped by plant type. A pictorial plant identification guide is also included. Each entry contains facts about the plant’s various uses, both historical and modern, and helpful descriptions. Though some knowledge of scientific vocabulary will aid understanding, most entries contain accessible terms and include colour photographs and illustrations. Edible and Medicinal Plants of Canada could support on-the-land lessons to identify local plants, or educators could ask learners to supplement the short entries through additional research.
