Gardens in the Classroom
Have you ever considered growing a garden in your classroom? Or maybe you have already had success!
I personally have not been blessed with a green thumb, but I love the idea of having children plant, and nurture, to learn a variety of responsibilities. Not to mention, a beautiful (or delicious) reward may come at the end of the process! For those of you who are like me, and have difficulty keeping plants alive, I challenge you to take on some succulents! Your kiddos can spray them once a week to keep them strong. The task of growing a plant may be daunting, but what a fun way to include sensory play while teaching young ones of the plant cycle. (Anyone remember the kidney bean experiment?!
