Our second grade students recently took a trip to the Denver Botanic Gardens as part of an extension to their studies about pollination. Their guiding question this unit was “How do we get the fruits, flowers and vegetables we enjoy?” As part of their field work, students explored the gardens, observed flowers in the rain forest green house, dissected a flower in the garden lab, and saw pollinators in action! This was a great experience for the students to have hands on learning, while referencing our unit on pollination.
