How do plants make new plants? It’s not just by producing seeds! Investigate spore patterns in the Fern Room, pups in the Palm House, and rhizomes in the Aroid House. Find out how and why plants have developed different ways of reproducing. This virtual field trip is appropriate for families with students in fifth-12th grade.
Virtual field trips include an orientation based on the chosen science topic, a guided, interactive, theme-focused tour throughout the collection with a Conservatory educator, the opportunity for questions and answers throughout, access to printable copies of select resources, and the opportunity to deepen student learning across subject areas in one of Chicago’s most beautiful institutions.
