"Celebrating Wildlife” - An Investigative Biodiversity Workshop Series:
Come and learn fascinating facts about plants and wildlife that make our gardens, parks and forests their home! This half-day workshop provides children with the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with both living and preserved specimens, participate in fun-filled, hands-on activities and go on guided walks to seek out wildlife in the Gardens. This “Celebrating Wildlife” Series is jointly organised by Singapore Botanic Gardens and Cicada Tree EcoPlace.
NEW Our Wild Isle - Under the Kapok Tree
(An Investigative Biodiversity Workshop)
This outdoor lesson will involve story-telling under a huge Kapok tree at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. We will read the story of “The Great Kapok Tree” written by Lynne Cherry. Through the story, children will learn that trees like the precious old Kapok tree are homes for animals and plants. They will appreciate that all animals are unique, beautiful and important, and have a right to live free and happy on our island! This lesson will focus on tall trees of the forest and the forest communities that make these large trees their homes. Participants will get to bring home with them their creative art piece as well as a potted plant.
