Plant & Animal Life

As part of the second-grade’s study of the Web of Life of Plant and Animals students visit the Edward Ryerson Conservation Area where they take an up-close look at seeds, plants and animals. Students observe plant and animal interactions by conducting an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow, they study the functions of an animal and make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.

“Ryerson gives students hands-on opportunities to explore science in a meaningful, hands-on, and fun way within their community,” said Teacher Sue Vani.
