Wakehurst Place and Botanical Gardens Trip

We had an amazing time on our trip. The first activity we did was the rainforest trail, where we looked at the plants in the gardens and identified similarities to plants that grow in the rainforest.

Then, we had an art activity. We had to create a piece or art inspired by our surroundings and what we had seen so far. We looked at Henri Rousseau and his rainforest art. We had natural resources found in the grounds and used this to work in teams to create our masterpiece.

We were praised by the Wakehurst team how well we worked together and how our art was so inspiring.

After lunch we then put on lab coats and became botanical scientists, exploring where rubber comes from, grating spices and identifying what part of the plant they come from, where plants and fruits are from around the world and then finally identifying with magnifying glasses, similarities and differences found in plants from the rainforest.
