Join us on your educational journey as we take learning about plant science outside the traditional classroom and into the garden! Teachers and students are invited to Mounts Botanical Garden for fun, hands-on programs developed to deepen our understanding and connection to our environment. Here we will focus on Florida Standards aimed at objective based learning.
Treasure Trek Scavenger Hunt (self-guided tour) – Study the map, solve the riddles, and follow the clues that will guide your class through the Garden, making beautiful botanical discoveries along the way. This program has students working as a team to solve the puzzles and find success. Teachers are given background information to help them with the hunt and to engage students with fun, extended learning opportunities with each find. Vocabulary lists and pre/post visit activity suggestions are included upon booking.
Wicked Plants (guided tour) – Come explore some of the more interesting and unusual specimens found in the Garden. Begin your tour in the classroom where students learn about the amazing and sometimes bizarre adaptations some plants have developed as a way of protecting themselves and helping them to survive. We then venture out into the Garden with experienced educators to see these plants flourishing in their natural habitats. Vocabulary lists and pre/post visit activity suggestions are included upon booking.
