I Love Plants Home School Day
Friday, February 14, 12:30 p.m. - 2 p.m.
How I love thee plants let me count the ways--you give me good food to eat, oxygen to breathe, pencil and paper to write, a home for me and the sweet singing birds. And when I really look closely I realize how beautiful and different you are: the shapes and curves of your leaves, the color and texture of your stems and flowers. Join Gertrude Green in a puppet show to discover how important plants are to everyday life. Visit the greenhouse to closely at the diversity of the plant world. Plant nasturtium seeds for a science experiment which you can add to your salad when you are done. Enjoy making and tasting a naturally sweet Valentine's Day treat called the Plant Part Parfait. Suggested ages: 1st-2nd grade.
