We have all kinds of lichen growing on the trees. We decided to gather it, classify it and study it for our homeschool nature science project. The major types of lichen are: Caperat lichen, Tumbleweed lichen, Common Orange lichen, White Worm lichen and Elegant Sunburst lichen.
We wrote all the names of the types of lichen down on a piece of cardboard and then glued the lichen we found onto it. For the types that we didn’t find, we simply drew the lichen.
