Become a Botanist?

What's It Like Where You Live?
Third and fourth graders have been learning about plants so we used this site for a web scavenger hunt. This site is sponsored by the Missouri Botanical Garden and includes information about several different biomes including the plants, animals, and more in each biome. The kids enjoyed it so much a few asked if they could get to it at home to look at the biomes they didn't have a chance to get to! This was a great way for them to practice following directions on the scavenger hunt, skimming for information, and paraphrasing the answers in addition to learning about plant adaptations. Check it out!
