Plant-based Learning: Gardening Projects in the Classroom

Focus on: Grades Pre-K - 4
Course Number: TEED649N

This workshop is designed to give you the basis for creating a standards-based, interdisciplinary gardening curriculum. Starting with the basics of how plants are built, how they grow, and how they reproduce, we will also suggest how best to care for them in a classroom environment. We will share lessons and activities that support science, math, social studies, and language and visual arts. Children's books and curriculum resources that extend teaching and learning about plants will be on display; bibliographies and webliographies will be among the printed material resources provided. To start the classroom garden off, each student will plant a variety of plants to take back to school.
