Our partner ReSEED - Rescuing seed's heritage - a project of the University of Coimbra - came to the school to explain the origin of several species and how they reached the whole world.
On this day we learn what each of the plant's organs is for and how the sap circulates within its conducting vessels.
This was the day of the presentations. In addition to getting to know the project, all students (2nd and 6th graders) also paid a visit to the future space of the pedagogical garden.
A special visit to know the most significant and oldest seed bank of native species in mainland Portugal, a space usually not visitable.
On this day, they challenged us to explore the Lisbon Botanical Garden to find seeds, many of them rare. The botanist Raquel Barata answered all our doubts.
In this class, we learned about the plant's components and the adaptations each one has undergone. There was still time for some sowing exercise.
