Learning From Leaves

We went on a field trip to our city's park conservatory. We learned how extreme climates change the growth and appearance of plants. We also discovered how plants have adapted with different leaf forms, functions and other peculiarities.  The program took us through hands-on activities, crafts, and exploration of the palm house jungle.
Cocoa tree pod.  Yum chocolate!

Each child went home with a plant they planted themselves.  Lucky boy Micaiah got one too, even though the field trip was only for K-Gr.3.
