There wasn’t any blog post yesterday, but yesterday we went on a fantastic field trip to the Chicago Botanic Garden. I had no idea that there was that much science that happened behind the scenes, they had a seed bank, were studying night blooming flowers, looking for fossil evidence of the fungi plant relationship and also trying to study what happens underground as plants grow. It was really interesting and the garden was beautiful.
This afternoon we had a fun time brainstorming different ideas for our plant hall game, some of them viable options and others ridiculous but entertaining none the less. I came up with Hedge Knights made of hedge, cat vigilantes and villainous plant men who want to compost the human race. We also played a fun story telling game, in the little bit of time we had left.
