Mini Explorers

Session outline

We would like to welcome young explorers to the Garden, to discover what a botanic garden is. Find Peter Rabbit in the veg beds and see which vegetables are growing. Spot all the colours to be able to sing a rainbow, and search for minibeasts near the Bog Garden. We will sing different songs and include a range of activities to encourage exploration. This session contains both a guided tour and self-guided activities.
Suitable for Nursery and Foundation Stage. Session length: 1 hour 15 minutes.

Please download a map of the Garden and the teacher's notes for this session.
