Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary How, When, Where, and Why Does Your Garden Grow? or "Planting Seeds, Growing Minds"
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic unit on the life cycle of a garden for grade 2 This unit is very important because plants are an important part of our everyday life. People and animals rely on them for survival. As a result, it's important that children know about all aspects of plants... how they grow, where, when and why. What better way to teach this concept than by planting a garden and letting the students be an active part of the learning experience from the very beginning.
