Get your students growing with this outstanding hands-on activity book! Through gardening, book-sharing, and other creative activities, students learn about topics ranging from flowers, vegetables, and mushrooms to windowsill gardens, butterflies, and scarecrows. Recipes, word play, and poetry embellish the activities. Designed to motivate and inform, these projects promote learning in a variety of subjects - from ecology, history, and geography to career exploration and the sciences. The authors also provide a list of resources related to gardening - legends, historical fiction, biography, picture books, how-to guides, and environmental books. This is an excellent resource for educators - school librarians, classroom teachers, science education teachers, home school parents, botanical garden education directors, social workers, camp directors - and anyone else who would like to start a children's gardening program.
