Other observation tools are included, as well, to be used alone or to help complete the activities outlined on the included project fold-out. You may follow the step-by-step activity plans, or you and your group may choose to simply explore the garden using the tools to observe, measure and record your observations. A journal is included for each person in your group and should be used to make a record of your visit to McKee. Some pages of your journals have directed activities, but other pages are left blank for you to capture images of plants, animals, and the thoughts your visit inspires.

For children ages 3-12, McKee's Garden Discovery Backpacks are perfect for charting your own Garden adventure! Each backpack contains an educational guide and a variety of tools for exploration. Choose from five themes: Garden Explorer, Things with Wings, It's a Bug's World, Plantastic and Survival: Lost in the Jungle. Included in admission price; please inquire at our Admissions window.
