Here are over 80 no-fuss, fun-in-the-dirt activities to launch budding gardeners! Informative and fun, this wonderful resource introduces children to living things, how they grow, and how all the parts of the environment – weather, seasons, soil, animals, and insects – come together like an amazing puzzle. With a few seeds, some water and soil, and common household items, children can discover the pleasure and importance of working with nature.
Ideal for unit studies, as a hands-on supplement to any science curriculum, or as a science program for early elementary students.
The ages and grades listed here are from the publisher; however we feel these products can be used with preschoolers who are doing subjects with older children. They can also be used by older students who need more hands-on activities.
