A refreshing source of ideas to help your children learn to grow their own patch of earth, Gardening Lab for Kids encourages children to get outside and enjoy nature. Author Renata Fossen Brown provides 52 plant-related activities set into weekly lessons, guiding your family through fun opportunities to learn about botany, ecology, the seasons, food, patience, insects, eating, and cooking. The labs can be used as singular projects or to build up to a year of hands-on outdoor experiences.
Each lesson in the book is open-ended to be explored over and over with different results each time. Gardening Lab for Kids is the perfect book for creative families, friends, and community groups and works to provide lesson plans for both experienced and new gardeners. Children of all ages and experience levels can be guided by adults and will enjoy these engaging exercises.
Here you can find two great activities for kids taken from the book.
