Back in October, we were invited to the San Antonio Botanical Garden to view the LEGO exhibit. We were so impressed that we immediately signed up for a family pass. We love the special events (Family Flashlight Night) and the exclusive members-only sneak peeks of new exhibits. We are so thankful for this San Antonio treasure–this is not a sponsored post, but Amazon affiliate links are included.
The NEW Rainforest Adventure Exhibit opened at the San Antonio Botanical Garden earlier this month, and we’ve been twice so far! Our girls love experiencing the maze, and I love the layers of learning that are added each time we walk through.
The exhibit is outside in the conservatory area (next to the palm trees), which allows for excited outdoor voices. There are several activity stations set up throughout the maze: opportunities for sensory exploration (sound and smell), as well as gross-motor movement (monkey bars, over-sized spider web for climbing, and more) and quiz areas to test adventurers on their acquired knowledge.
We requested a bunch of rainforest books (thanks, San Antonio Public Library!) so that we can explore new concepts even further. Addie even brought the books with her on her last trip so she could keep learning on the way home.
Here are a few of our favorite non-fiction books about the rainforest:
* Rain Forest Food Chains (A. Royston)
* Rain Forest Babies (K. Darling)
* Amazon Rain Forest (G. Watson)
* At Home in the Rain Forest (D. Willow)
* Tropical Rainforests (S. Simon)
* And a little fiction: The Great Kapok Tree (L. Cherry)
