In the lab it gives you a "walking dichotomous key" which are full sheets of paper that you tape up around the room.
You could bring in tree branches for the students to use but I instead printed and laminated cards with pictures of the leaves, bark, seeds, etc of various trees for the students to identify.

They write down their findings in the log
I find this lab works really well for those kinesthetic learners in class who need to get up and move around.
