Y5 Kakapo - Friends & Foes Botanical Gardens

Rooms 11 & 16

Big ideas
Big experiences

Fed up with bugs eating the veges in the garden before you do? Students learn to grow healthy plants that stand up to garden pests, leaving all the eating them for you! 

Students take a look at invertebrate food chains and life cycles. Then it's into the garden to compost, plant and look for what pests are lurking there. Students mix special concoctions to help combat the pests in your school garden. 

But no chemicals are used here... it's all natural!
