PLANTS & ANIMALS LEARNING CENTER
An Agriculturally Rich Introduction to the Living Kingdoms
In the plants and animals room, children are invited to care for and investigate a growing
hydroponics garden and gain a primary understanding of the various parts of plants and their functions.
Children also investigate animals, their habitats and their basic needs while comparing and contrasting their
similarities and differences.
This learning center features a hollowed out tree that provides students the opportunity to discover various
features of a tree from the inside out! The tree's interior includes a lab-like persona, allowing discovery on
multiple levels and enabling children to identify nature sounds, and many other age-appropriate science
experiment styled activities.
