Come on a journey through the Botanic Garden to discover the amazing world of plants. Get hands-on with different types of seeds to determine their dispersal mechanisms and plant seeds to take back to school to conduct a life cycle investigation.
- Students will explore plant life cycles on a guided walk through the Botanic Garden and discover how scientists classify plants
- They will investigate seed dispersal in a hands-on experiment comparing different types of seeds and how they disperse
- Students make predictions and conduct a scientific investigation into whether specific Australian plants need fire and smoke to complete their lifecycles, including planting seeds to take back to school to complete the investigation
