February Break Children's Workshop: Blossoming Botanist

  • Backyard Growers 271 Main Street Gloucester, MA, 01930 United States (map)

Thursday's theme is Blossoming Botanist. Children will be introduced to botany: the study of plants. Through science, observation, art, and play we will answer some questions about plants like: why they’re green? How do they grow? What do they need? And how they are different from each other? Activities will include some simple science experiments, plant dress up, a water cycle game, plant and seed dissection, and other plant focused fun!

PLEASE NOTE: Thursday is our only afternoon session of the week.
