This exploration features a pre-recorded video tour of Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ Downtown Sarasota campus (~15 minutes). The tour is a brief introduction to the Gardens and the fascinating plants and habitats found there- from the rainforest to the desert to our favorite local superstars, the mangroves.

This virtual tour is complemented by several downloadable curricular packets that support multiple science, math and language arts standards through explorations of native plants, rainforest conservation, butterfly metamorphosis, plant adaptations and more! Activities in the curricular units can be modified by teachers for at-home virtual learning or extended to address additional standards.

Specific standards and benchmarks addressed are within each PDF unit.
