The Growing Classroom


This award-winning resource book from gardening educators at Life Lab contains 480 pages of science, math, language arts, and nutrition activities that you can do with your students in the garden. Lesson topics include soil, plants, cycles, ecology, weather, nutrition, and food systems. This content rich guide also includes team-building and sensory exploration activities, organic gardening skills, and information on how to create and sustain a successful school garden program. The fourth edition added a new chapter on Healthy Eating, an expanded resource section on Cooking with Kids, over 25 student lab sheets for experiments, and more.

As a special feature, Life Lab has created a searchable online database that cross-maps each activity to Next Generation Science and Common Core Math and English Language Arts Standards.
