  1. Poster introduction: Starting from the four main ecosystems (grassland, forest, wetland and ocean) where plants are located: the first ecosystem – grassland ecosystem, the obvious regional differences of global grassland carbon source and sink will be introduced, thus enhancing global perspective and introducing plant carbon sequestration processes. The second ecosystem – forest ecosystem: Focus will be put on the three periods when China’s forests changed from carbon source to carbon sink and carbon sink further enhanced, as well as the different stages of China’s economic development, so as to make people understand China’s measures and contributions to the global carbon sink. The third kind of ecosystem –wetland ecosystem: Wetland’s important carbon sink function as an important source of greenhouse gas methane will be introduced, and three important wetlands in China and their important plant communities will be introduced. The fourth ecosystem – marine ecosystem: The important role and development prospect of marine blue carbon in the development of green and low-carbon industry will be emphatically introduced to break the barrier between environmental protection and economic development in people’s traditional concept.
  2. On-site display and interaction: Typical plants of the four ecosystems, such as reed and hibiscus, are selected to demonstrate plant characteristics with specimens or potted plants, and simple methods, such as pictures, clay sculptures and models, are used to show the forms and mechanism of plant carbon sequestration. According to the content of popular science, popular science topics are selected for the public, with prizes as rewards.

  1. Identify plants by smell: Parents and families need to identify the names of spice plants on the pictures; The powder of several spice plants is placed on the spot, and the name of the plant can be identified by smelling the fragrance. Next, according to their own preferences, a beautiful sachet can be made and taken home free.
  2. Black box matrix: a number of black boxes are placed on site. Each black box is filled with a variety of vegetables and fruits. Unable to see anything, child needs to touch the items in the black box with his hand, and judge the name of the items in the black box by “tactility”.
  3. Travel of seeds: Some rare seeds and fruits are put on the spot, as to popularize the knowledge of plant seeds to the public visitors, and have a close contact with the seeds by “throwing”, “touching” and “holding”.
  4. Art badges: Children will be given a round piece of paper on which they can draw all kinds of graffiti. The staff on site can guide children to draw “favorite plants” and “plants seen in the botanical garden”, etc. Through the way of painting, the children show their love for nature, and the last badge can be worn on the chest, as a beautiful memory of visiting the park.
  5. Play with leaves: Children can master certain professional terms through the introduction of different leaf shapes on site. Also, children should find corresponding leaves nearby, describe the shape of leaves orally, and finally intuitively understand the characteristics of leaves’ veins through leaf rubbing.
