Abstract

The project, Some Common Wildflowers of Newfoundland, involves a report on the development of a media package on the identification of Newfoundland wildflowers. The package includes slides on fifty species of wildflowers, fifty student cards to help with the identification of the flowers, and a teacher booklet containing information about each wildflower. The media package is designed to be used with the Searching for Structure science program in junior high school. -- The need for the package was established through informal and formal means. Wildflowers were photographed, student identification cards were designed, and information on each wildflower was obtained. These components were put together in an instructional package for presentation to students. Before the package was presented it was examined by experts, content specialists, learning specialists, and a media specialist, for their evaluation. -- The media package was tested at three different schools throughout the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Data from the testing process revealed that the package was well received and helped students identify wildflowers. Using this as evidence of the value of the package it was decided to make it available to schools of Newfoundland and Labrador.
