Preschool Lesson Plans:Classroom Garden

One of my favorite things about spring is starting a garden with the kids. there are so many things they learn through it. Patience, responsibility, and a sense of accomplishment are some. But cognitively, there are math skills(counting the seeds you plant), science (photosynthesis), and cause and effect (if the plant gets water sun and soil it will grow). You can do a gardening unit, and then make your garden a part of your daily routine. if you are able to grow enough, pick it and serve it. You may encourage healthy eating while you are at it!! Here is a resource for teachers about gardening in the classroom.
