Example presentation
This groups purpose was “Types of Leaves to be
found in the Chilterns”
They have made a presentation to show what
they found out using pictures and have also said
how they got on with their expedition
Group: Sam, Mark, Matt, Joe & Jessica
Aim: To study the different types of
During our Duke of Edingborough
walk we encountered many
different leaves. However, their
were 5 main ones which kept
Oak leaves:
-These often have spirally arranged leaves
-The leaves are poisonous to cattle, horses,
sheep and goats due to the toxin tannic
-However if a livestock has a taste of these
leaves they may seek them out causing
-Pigs are the only animal which do not
become ill from eating oak leaves or

away from
those in the
Fern leaves
- These do not have seeds or flowers
instead they reproduce using spores.
- There are over 12,000 species of fern
and the West Tropics has up to 65% of
Australia's fern species!
- Out of the 12000 species it is a
surprise that our D.O.E group only
found one type of species on our walkHares foot fern!
Deck the Halls with boughs of.....
Holly leaves
These are easily identified by their
prickly edge
People often plant them to create a
hedge for privacy
However they are most commonly
known for being a Christmas decoration
Where are the
holly leaves?
Stinging Nettles
-These were the most common type of leaf
our group came across.
-They are easily identified due to the hairs
which surround the stem and leaf- these hairs
are often stinging hairs.
- This happens because when touched the
hair transforms into a needle injecting several
chemicals into the skin causing a painful sting.
-Unfortunately for our group we had many
encounters with this type of leaf throughout
our walk causing plenty of sore legs!!!
Dock leaves
-These are easily identified due
to the large surface area of the
-They are often found growing
near the area where stinging
nettles grow.
-Many people believe that they
have the ability to soothe stings
which are caused by the stinging
nettles – which was fortunate
for our group!
Ivy Leaves
-These often grow in vines up
-The most commonly known
type of ivy is poison ivy which
has the ability to give people
rashes when they touch it.
-Luckily our group did not
encounter poison ivy!
Overall our Duke of Edingborough experience was very
We believe we successfully completed our aim of studying the
different types of leaves.
And after a hard day walking across the
countryside our group looked forward to putting
our tent up, playing some cards and going to sleep!
