Realm of Plants
Focus on plants' science-based stories of photosynthetic powers, of origins and lineages, and of adapting to places. This bead will help you keep them in the back of your mind to frame your experiences and see how they fit into Earth's big narratives.
Sense plants: let your eyes absorb their shapes and colors, your nose detect the scents of their resins and nectars. Run your fingers across their varied structures and surface features. This bead reminds you to directly experience the Realm of Plants and its stories through your senses.
Learn just enough about plants to turn your experiences into interactive discovery with growing insight over time. This bead sets you up for a cycle of sensing, wondering, and learning that originates with basic knowledge of plants' adaptive traits, species and families, and their chemical mastery.
