The Gardening Workbook PLUS Plant Science & Nutrition: For Kids, Families and Classrooms
From the author:
Can you imagine a world without plants and trees?
It would be impossible for us to live without plants and trees as they provide us with the necessary oxygen that all humans and animals need to breathe. And since the beginning of time, the fruits, leaves, seeds, roots, and other parts of plants and trees have been used by humans and other animals for food, shelter and medicine. They provide us with nourishment, joy, and connect us to other people and our environment.
The Gardening Workbook PLUS Plant Science & Nutrition For Kids, Families and Classrooms provides 32 fun and cohesive lessons about gardening, plant science, and nutrition for children in grades 2 through 6. Each lesson guides children in creating, maintaining and measuring individual container gardens and includes coordinated projects, creative writing prompts, and fun challenging questions that help their minds to grow stronger.
And unlike typical handouts at school that get disposed of, stashed away, or lost from week to week, this workbook was created in hopes that each child would be able to receive their own copy. This means each child can have the opportunity to reflect on lessons over and over again and be inspired and empowered to maintain their container gardens as well as create fun, low to no cost crafts from basic materials during the months when school is out.
