In the Classroom

If you aren't lucky enough to have outdoor gardening space, take advantage of ideas offered for indoor gardens such as terrariums and container gardening. Be sure to check out the extensive lesson library to search by theme, standards, season, and more. Use the Growing Poems ideas from the site as part of your poetry or plant unit. After starting your garden project, have students create an annotated image of their plants including text boxes and related links using a tool such as Photocat, reviewed here. Be sure to check out the Grants & Fundraising link for information on raising money for your classroom or school garden!
