For the last two weeks in Year 1, we have been learning all about growing plants. Our class was lucky enough to visit Sunshine Nursery & Garden Centre for our field trip. I would like to pass along a massive “Thank you” to Nadine for showing us such a wonderful time! Not only did we have fun but we also learned lots!
During our trip, we took a tour and learned what a nursery is, about how some plants grow from seeds and how with some plants, you can snip off a bit of the plant and re-plant it to grow another new plant. We also learned where Turks Head Cactus keep their seeds and how important it is to show lots of patience because they take a long time to grow! After, our tour, we got a chance to plant a cutting of a bougainvillea and also two seeds straight from Africa—the Baobab seed and the Ceiba Pentendra seed.
