Learning Opportunities


It is suggested to teachers that students be introduced to the variety of plants and the basic requirement for plant growth (air, light, water and room to grow).


Optional post-visit aspects of the task - students could work scientifically by comparing the effect of different factors on plant growth, eg. amount of light or the amount of fertiliser. „ Students can extend their understanding to the life cycle of plants with particular reference to seed production.

Learning Outcomes

Students will be aware of the relationship between structure and function. They will explore the effects of different factors on plant growth.
