Last Wednesday, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students traveled to the The Atlanta Botanical Garden to enjoy a  guided tour by several of the Garden’s docents that focused specifically on plant diversity.  While most plants have similar parts, each species’ vary in function and appearance according to their environment. During this tour, students discussed plant adaptations as they explored the Outdoor Gardens and the Fuqua Conservatory – particularly the rainforest, desert and southeastern bog gardens. 

Afterwards, we walked to Piedmont Park to enjoy a picnic lunch and get some exercise at one of the playgrounds.  After releasing some energy, students returned to the Botanical Garden to explore the Children’s Garden.  See some of our pictures below and check out the Field Trip board in the main hallway to see an even more complete Atlanta Botanical Garden field trip in pictures!
