Need help to identify this weed

I am helping my son do a science fair project, and I would like to use this particular weed as my subject of study. The reason I want to use this is that it is all over my yard, so it is readily available.

I'm in South Florida, zone 10B.

I have attached a picture of this weed. If anyone can help to identify its common name or scientific name, that would be very helpful.

Thanks so much for all your help! I think after looking closely, it is the Pilea Microphylla (Artillery Fern). Thanks again.
