Plant Adaptation Origami

This plant leaf adaptation activity set was designed by Jennifer Blake Mahmud and Catrina Adams for the 2016 USA Science and Engineering Festival as part of a series of booth activities representing the Botanical Society of America at a shared Plant Presence Booth. The intended use is as "drop-by" booth activities for public science outreach for school groups and families, but the activities can be adapted for the classroom.
