At Westwood we offer interactive visits that are in conjunction with the current educational curriculum. All grades from k-12 can be accomodated. Over half of our site is indoors so your visit can take place rain or shine.
We offer a guided tour with in depth information for grades 9-12 on our collection of exotic and farm animals. This can be followed by a visit to our planting room and greenhouses to have a hands on encounter into the horticultural side of our business.
K-4 will enjoy a less formal visit that includes our tour and hands on petting and feeding of newborn farm animals. Each child will be sent home with their very own seeded plant pot that they will create with our staff.
Grade 5-8 will be able to take part in some basic feeding and watering after their tour of the site and experience our fact finding quiz sheets that take them on a information gathering mission. After which they link their found information to plants that are grown on site.
We can supply to teachers in advance our curriculam based fact and question sheets for the school to reproduce before their arrival. An answer sheet is also supplied.
