Central Idea: Plants play a unique role in our lives and the lives of animals.
Lines of inquiry: The feature of plants in our local area
This week the Water group focused on the different plants that can be found around the Pacific Spirit Park. We took a walk in the forest to gather leaves from different plants and tried to identify their names. Even though the children felt it was a little difficult and confusing (some of the leaves looked quite similar), they showed such enthusiasm and commitment in learning about the different plants. We invited the Wind Group on a plant hunt. Before entering the forest, each child was given a plant card with the name and pictures of a plant and the goal was to locate the plant in the forest.
