In this virtual session, students will work with a Gardens Educator to discover the amazing world of plants and their seeds. We’ll discuss different types of seeds and their features before determining their unique dispersal mechanisms. Your Gardens Educator will then conduct real live experiments for students to interact with.
After the excursion, students will be challenged to collect seeds local to them and conduct their own simple experiments.
- Students will discover and define plant life cycles, defining features and complete a sorting activity
- They will view and interact with live seed dispersal experiments, comparing different types of seeds and how they disperse in order to reproduce
- Students also watch a live seed-smoking experiment, exploring the wonderful world of germination by fire
