Kids Gardening Themes
We use gardening as a vehicle for encouraging children to make good food choices, augmenting classroom studies with experiential learning, building a love of nature, stimulating social interaction, facilitating cultural exchange, and more. Each of the following topics in our Thematic Explorations Library features scads of classroom stories, curriculum connections, "how-to" articles, related Web sites, and more. We hope they will inspire you to cultivate curious learners.
