Nature and garden activities and resources for children, families and the naturally curious!
Exploring in nature is a great way to learn about the world around us. Rutgers Gardens wants to help children, parents, teachers, and everyone else to explore and learn together. On this page we have put together learning resources and activities for children that you can do at home, in your neighborhood, or at Rutgers Gardens. Visit this site often since we will be adding new items regularly, and follow us on social media for updates!
Pollinator Activity Journal
Pollinators are critters such as bees, butterflies and birds that help plants to make fruit and seeds. Without pollinators, we wouldn’t have a lot of the yummy food we have now! See all of the fun activities in our Pollinator Activity Journal (PDF).

Look more closely at plants and you will see that they have many different parts – leaves, stems, buds, flowers, fruit, seeds. Can you find all these parts on plants you see?
