Why you’ll love The Garden Classroom
:: The Garden Classroom gives you a year’s worth of resources you can use to give your children a connection with nature. You will have activities to teach science, math, and literacy using the outdoors as your classroom. You will also have clever and creative ideas to enjoy arts, crafts and play with your children.
:: It’s filled with beautiful, full-color photographs bringing each activity to life and clearly showing you each project. It’s a pleasure to read and practical: let your children browse through the pages and pick their favorite project, then print off the individual pages and you’re ready to start.
:: Suitable for children aged from two through to ten, every activity in the book has been tried, tested and approved by children – my own daughters, the children I have worked with in my home day-care setting, and those in the school gardening project that I run.
:: Covering all seasons, and all weathers, there’s a project you could try today, and enough ideas to last you all year long. You can decide to do an activity each week, or group them together as a block of learning.
:: No gardening expertise is required! The book gives you lots of tips to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables with your children. Many of the activities are centred on enjoying the outdoors and using whatever outdoor space you have – whether that’s a large garden, a tiny plot like my own, a school garden area, a window box or even your local park or woodland. The projects don’t have to all be done outside either – most of them will work just as well within a classroom setting.
:: Every activity is clearly laid out with beautiful photographs and step-by-step instructions. It includes many ideas to vary the projects and extend them to suit your own children’s ages, stages and interests.
:: The ebook will be delivered as soon as you place your order, via e-mail as a downloadable pdf document. This allows you to browse the book on your computer and select the activities you want to try first. You can choose to print the whole book, for reference or to add in to your planning files. You can also print individual projects, so you have the step-by-step guides for each activity to take with you into the garden or classroom.
