  • please create name tags for your students (self adhesive labels work well) -we can get to know your students quickly when we can see their names!
  • dress in layers (e.g. a T-shirt and a sweater/sweatshirt) because the greenhouse is often warm
  • bring labeled bottles of water - no drinking fountains at the Greenhouse
  • all program materials, including pencils and clipboards, are provided

2. Review the process of photosynthesis.
3. If you have a grade 3/4 split class please note that this program is designed specifically to meet grade 4 curriculum requirements and is not suitable for grade 3 students. Please DO NOT include grade 3 students on this trip.
