Grade 3 - The Root of Things
Be a botanist for a day! Dissect a seed and take a peek inside. Compare roots, stems and leaves of different plant species. Dissect a flower and observe its parts under magnification. Explore seed dispersal methods and identify unusual pollinators. Investigate poisonous plants that could be as close as your backyard. Identify invasive plant species and learn what we can do to stop them. Partner-up and conduct a greenhouse gas experiment that demonstrates the impact plants have on our planet. Wrap up with a chance to hold and observe real fossil plants from the time of the dinosaurs!
