Now that you have explored our virtual park it is time to go and find some living things around your home or school. Make sure to bring your activity sheet from before to record your findings. Find and collect one leaf or flower that you really like?
Make sure to only pick leaves and flowers that are on the ground. The ones on the plant the plant really needs!
When you are back from your expedition it is time to press your leaf or flower to put in your journal so you can record your scientific findings.
Watch the video below to find out how!
When scientists are in the Botanic Gardens, they often find leaves or flowers they think are very special and make a drawing of it. This is called a Botanical Illustration!
