Trace the life cycles of plants, trees and insects in this hands-on program connecting the cycles of nature with life science in the garden. Students are challenged to sequence the stages of insect and plant cycles as well as identify the interdependence of plants and animals in a garden setting.
K-2: Students explore the life cycles of plants, trees and insects through books, models, and specimens.
3-5: Students search for living and non-living factors in an ecosystem and then observe plants and insects in different life stages.
6-8: Students find biotic and abiotic factors in an ecosystem and then make scientific observations of plants and insects and identify life stages.
