We have created and adapted school garden lesson plans and unit plans that fully integrate with North Carolina state education standards. Organized by grade and subject.
During Covid school closures, we developed an interactive lesson (using Google Slides) for grades 1-5. “Save a copy” and share with your class. Lesson plans (with Standards) provided for each lesson.
Engaging 20 or even 30 students in the garden is a daunting task. Use centers to facilitate small group activities and engage in integrated learning experiences.
Taking a class to the garden should be a fun experience for the students, but it’s not recess. Use this practical guide to establish your outdoor classroom expectations.
