  • Fascinating Flora / Denise Anderson

    Do you like plants? Are you interested in biology (the science of living things)? If so, then this is the place for you! We're going to learn all about the many different types of plant life on Earth and even grow a few of our own! We'll study how plants evolved and learn how they are both similar and different to animal life with some fun experiments, a few plant-based crafts, some really silly games and even a few plant-dissections too! We'll grow plants of our very own using traditional soil, hydroponics and even a few alternative mediums too, like super-absorbent polymers instead of soil. We'll even attempt to grow plants alongside insects to see if we can help create symbiotic habitats. So if you're interested in learning more about plants, this is the place for you - no "green thumb" required!
