This on-demand, virtual exploration has two components:
Downtown Sarasota Campus Virtual Garden Tour (~17 minutes)
Take a virtual stroll through Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ Downtown Sarasota campus and learn about the fascinating plants and habitats found there – from the rainforest to the desert to our favorite local superstars, the mangroves.
Embracing our (Bio)Differences Virtual Leaf Lab (~5 minutes + a self-directed discussion)
Every leaf has a story. Explore the stories four leaves have to tell in the Embracing our (Bio)Differences Virtual Leaf Lab.
These virtual explorations are 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!
Specific standards and benchmarks addressed are within each PDF unit.
