Plant structures, pollination and life cycles

What is a plant? Join us on a journey to experience a day in the life of a plant. In the field, students group plants according to their features and use simple classification keys.

Consider the importance of pollination and photosynthesis. Get hands-on with different types of seeds and find out how flowers work. Using a native seed, students work together to design a fair test to investigate germination.

'Absolutely love this excursion. It's a Plant's life is so informative and so well linked to our class topic.' - Year 4 Teacher

'Thank you so much for providing this outstanding experience for our students so they can appreciate our beautiful and very special Australian flora!' - Year 4 Teacher
