Investigating vegetables to learn the basics of classification at Plantscafe

Four key themes are explored - Conservation, Art and Plants, Food and Experimenting with Plant Growth.  Each theme offers activities for five days of school work, with at least one of these days taking place in a botanic garden.  This inquiry centred, multicultural, multilingual resource will be available on-line from November 2007.  For more information visit the Plantscafe website.
